Garlic Chicken w/ Linguine

4 Servings
1 package of linguine, product of Italy, 365 Organic, 16 oz. ingredients: organic semolina (durum wheat), water. Allergen information: Contains wheat ingredients, good manufacturing practices used to segregate ingredients in a facility that also process egg ingredients.

1 1/2 skinless chicken breast
3 cloves of fresh garlic diced
1 teaspoon of basil (better to use fresh basil)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon of cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon slice

Bring water (5 quarts per pound of pasta) to boil. Add sea salt and pasta. Boil for 7-9 minutes or to desired tenderness stirring occasionally. Noodles taste better when it is not over cooked. Save 2 table spoon of the cooked water for the chicken. Drain pasta in colander. Rinse with cool water. I usually season my linguine with garlic power, sea salt, and olive oil. The noodle has a richer flavor.

Chopped the chicken into bite sizes. Season it with lemon. In a mixing bowl, add sea salt, pepper, garlic, basil, saved cooked linguine water, and the chicken. Mix all the ingredients. (optional: marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for 5 hours prior to serving. It tastes better). On medium to high gas stove, fry the chicken. Sautee the chicken until golden color. Serve with linguine.
