A great dinner dish with tagliatelle. I left the chicken marinate a little longer in the lemon juice, but I just wanted to get the most out of the flavor. I love that the recipe calls for cooking the broccoli with the pasta. It really helps bring out the flavors. The overall taste after combining everything in the end is great. It tastes light but leaves you feeling full and satisfied.
