You are Gonna Want to Make This Lemon Chicken



If you know the New York restaurant scene, then you know Rao's and if you know Rao's, you know how difficult it is to get a reservation there.  It is known to be the toughest place to get a reservation in the United States.  

Rao's has been a New York icon since it opened in 1896.  My brother and his wife once got the opportunity to dine there and said it was the most amazing meal they ever had.

Now, you don't have to wait to get a seat in this premiere restaurant because Rao's sells its delicious sauces and pastas, cookbooks and more online and in select retail locations.

I made this simple and delicious meal for my family and wanted to share the easy recipe with you.

Lemon Chicken with Fusilli and Peas

Start by grilling thin sliced chicken breast.  I usually like to cut mine about 1/2 inch thick.  Start with a hot grill pan so that you can get a nice char on your chicken.  You can even use your grill, if you'd like.

Next, place your grilled chicken into a shallow pan and add 1 jar of Rao's Homemade Lemon Cooking Sauce.

Cook on low for 20 minutes.

While that is cooking, bring 1 pot of lightly salted water to a rapid boil.  Add 1 package of Rao's Homemade Fusilli Pasta and 1 can of drained and rinsed peas and cook until the pasta is al dente. (About 15 minutes)

Remove your chicken from the pan.  Spoon a little of the sauce over the chicken then, leave the rest of the sauce in the pan. Serve your chicken pretty platter, garnished with lemon.

Place your drained Fusilli and peas in the remaining sauce and lightly toss it.


That's it!  Serve and enjoy!

Look how beautiful!




Rao's Fusilli is big and beautiful.  It is certain to impress your loved ones and guests.


Rao's makes so many different pastas and sauces. 




They are all so delicious. They have something to please everyone.  They also have other products and gifts including:


Look for Rao's at a specialty store near you, or shop online for all of their delicious Italian foods.

  1. I really like lemon chicken but rarely ever season my chicken that way. Thanks for the reminder and for introducing me to this new to me brand. Anything that is labeled homemade has to be good! ;)

    1. That sounds amazing. My son, who is a grown man, loves pasta with peas. He also likes mashed potatoes with peas. So I often make them . I am going to definitely pair this with asparagus next time.
