Step by Step Directions
Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook chicken, stirring often, until lightly browned (be careful not to over-cook, as the chicken will continue to cook with the pasta). Stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add sun-dried tomatoes, pasta, chicken broth, and water. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the asparagus, cover, and cook 3 minutes more, until pasta is al dente. Uncover and cook at a low simmer for 2 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and stir in the half and half (or cream), Parmesan, and lemon zest. Enjoy!
