Supper-Lemon Spaghetti with Chicken, Desert- Clafouti

I added about 1/2 c white wine to this and used small amount of butter
in place of margarine.
When pulling chicken from leftover roasted chicken I don’t believe
I could dice it, so it was shreaded and not browned as in recipe.
I also combine some wheat pasta with regular. About
1/2 and 1/2.
I usually do that with spaghetti because I don’t care for
all wheat pasta. I do like the combination. It was very good.
Parmesan was also a good addition.

Lemon Spaghetti with Chicken

16 ounces Spaghetti, Thin Spaghetti, or Linguini — uncooked
4 tablespoons margarine
16 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts — cut into bite-size pieces
2 12-ounce cans low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel
4 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
Salt and freshly ground black pepper — to taste

Melt margarine in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat.
Add chicken and brown until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes.
Remove chicken from pan.

Add remaining ingredients to pan, except spaghetti. Bring mixture
to a boil and add spaghetti. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for
about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cut chicken into
2 × 1/4-inch strips. Add to the spaghetti mixture. Cover and simmer
5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.

Serves 6-8

    Hubby wasn’t home or I would have had to had something with a little more meat. This was great for my aunt and me. I need to diet and it was light.

    I think I like making clafouti just because it’s fun to say… is that wrong?
