6-8 oz. Cremini mushrooms, quartered
1 shallot, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lemon, zested and halved
2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, 1 inch thick or pounded out that way
5 oz. angel hair pasta, cooked al dente, reserve 1/2 c. pasta water
2 oz. white cooking wine
4 oz. light cream
1 c. shaved Parmesan cheese
Place a medium size pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper and place in the heated oil. Cook for 6 minutes undisturbed (do not touch them!), flip, and cook for another 5 minutes. Set the chicken aside and place the pan back on the heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and mushrooms, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the shallot and garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add in the wine, and juice from half of the lemon. Cook for 2 minutes. Add in the cream and pasta water and bring the mixture to a boil. Turn back down to medium heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the cooked pasta and half of the Parmesan back into the sauce and stir together. Season the mixture again with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the pasta and sauce among two plates. Slice the chicken and place a chicken breast on top of each pasta mound. Sprinkle the top of the chicken with lemon zest and the remaining shaved Parmesan cheese.
