This is Penne with Chicken, Asparagus and Lemon from one of the greatest cookbooks ever, The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook. As is typical of this cookbook, the recipe is made for whole grain pasta — it’s not just a swap we made.
I used the chicken breast from whole chicken we got from McCann’s Local Meats. I could have used only one chicken breast half and it would have been fine. In fact, I probably could have made just half the recipe. There was a lot left over.
