WHAT’S GOING ON HERE:

Chicken: For this recipe, use any chicken cut you have on hand or prefer. This dish also works great with bone in chicken . Just serve it on the side.

Black Truffle : Black truffle gives the pasta a really earthy flavor. Its not something heavily used in the dish since a little goes a long way. If truffles are not an option switch it to a mushroom spaghetti or add a pinch of dried porcine mushroom powder

Butter: Butter takes this kind of simple dish and make it that much better. The butter adds tremendous fat to the pasta and chicken keeping it super juicy and tender. The butter also cuts the tang of the lemon and white wine making its own pan sauce.

Lemons: Lemons are a great addition to any simple chicken dish. Add the whole lemons with the seeds removed of course so that you don’t have to do any fishing around with the hot dish. Once the lemons roast into the dish the oil from the rind and the juice permeates the chicken and the pasta . Use a splash of white wine to help the lemons get a chance to break down.

TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST ROASTED LEMON CHICKEN & BLACK TRUFFLE PASTA

fresh lemons:  fresh lemons are always better. the whole lemons have oils along with the juice  that really make the dish flavorful and  aromatic.

keep it simple: keeping it simple is a must. butter, lemon and a smash of garlic is all you need to make this super flavorful dish.

the pan sauce: once the chicken is removed from the oven. it will be sitting in a roasted pan sauce that is a combination of all the acids, fat and herbs added into the dish. use this pan sauce to baste the chicken throughout the cooking process. you can let the chicken rest in the pan sauce till it becomes cool enough to handle. once you add the chicken to the pasta top it with a couple spoonfuls of the sauce. to really drive home the flavor. don’t drench it in pan sauce or you may lose some of the truffle flavor.

adding the truffles: if you are using truffles its important that they  are tossed in the pasta towards the end. truffles don’t need any heat or cooking. tossing them with the pasta while still warm is enough heat to activate the flavor.
