  • Use freshly squeezed lime juice. Squeeze 1 large lime to produce about 2 tablespoons of lime juice. If you do use bottled lime juice – use a smaller amount than indicated in the recipe. Freshly squeezed lime juice is very flavorful, and that’s what should be used in this recipe.
  • Save some cooked pasta water. If your creamy sauce gets too thick, add pasta water to the sauce to thin it out.
  • Use either chicken breast or skinless boneless chicken thighs or chicken tenderloins. Slice the chicken before cooking.
  • To make this pasta gluten-free, use gluten-free brown rice pasta. If you use gluten-free pasta, make sure to rinse it after you cooked it in boiling water – it will prevent it from getting mushy.
  • Use either shredded Mozzarella cheese or shredded Parmesan cheese to make the sauce.
