  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons butter divided
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup parsley finely, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Start by bringing a large pot of salted water to a boil. Then, add in the spaghetti noodles and cook until al dente according to the package directions. Drain the noodles and reserve 1 cup of the pasta water. Set aside.

  • Remove the chicken from the skillet and slice it thinly and into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  • Transfer the pasta into the skillet, along with ¼ cup of the reserved pasta water. Toss to coat. Then, add in the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter and continue to toss and coat the pasta well. Season to taste by adding more salt and pepper as desired.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and add the freshly grated parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley. Toss until combined.
