Pasta with fried, warm aromatic sage, Parmesan sauce, chicken and lemon zest is a DELICIOUS, quick and easy meal. Hectic day? This sage pasta is perfect for those busy weeknights or last-minute fridge clean.
Cook pasta according to the directions on the back of the box. Don't forget to salt your water.
In a skillet large enough to fit all of the pasta over medium heat, add 1 tbs of butter. Add the minced sage. Cook just until the butter turns brown and the sage is crisp.
Transfer sage to a paper towel.
Heat one tablespoon of the oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Saute the onions until soft about 5 minutes. Add the garlic to the onions and cook until fragrant. Scoop the onions and garlic out into a small bowl.
Add more oil to the skillet if needed. Over medium-high heat cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes each side for small, thin chicken breast. For large thicker chicken breast, about 10 mins each side or until the temperature of the chicken breast reads 165 F. Set to the side.
