  1. Cook pasta per package directions, adding peas during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking liquid, then drain pasta and peas.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large deep skillet on medium-high. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook until golden brown on all sides, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add lemon juice to skillet and cook, scraping up any browned bits. Add cream cheese and stir until melted; remove from heat.
  4. Fold in lemon zest and Parmesan, then parsley. Toss with pasta (adding reserved cooking liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time as necessary). Add salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Recipe Tips

Swap the chicken for a can of drained white beans to make this a fiber-filled vegetarian meal.
