Chicken and Spaghetti

I'm looking to do a chicken and spaghetti dinner on the cheap. The chicken will be cut up and cooked and then added into the spaghetti. I'm stumped on what to make for a sauce. I immediately jumped to an alfredo sauce, but I want to get some acid in there. Maybe some olive oil, lemon juice and some herbs? It would be ideal if the sauce was more of a vehicle for the herbs. Maybe chicken stock and olive oil would work?

What do you all think?

In Central New York chicken and pasta means Chicken Riggies from Utica, take a look at one of the many "original" recipes!


The Brooklyn Ragazza: Utica Chicken Riggies (Original, Chef Joe Morelli recipe)

Good luck!

I have to agree. You can find a lot of variations of this, including slow cooker versions.

Given your original request, jennyema's suggestion of piccata seems to be a natural.
