postheadericon How To Make Chicken and Onions Over Linguini

Ingredients

1 (8 ounce) package linguine pasta
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, cut into large dice
4 green onions, cut into 1/4-inch pieces, white and green parts separated
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
3 sprigs fresh thyme
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Cook the linguine in the boiling water until tender but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain, reserving about 3/4 cup of the pasta water. Place the drained pasta in a large bowl.

Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over low heat. Cook the diced onion and white parts of the green onion in the butter and oil for about 10 minutes.

Stir the green parts of the green onions, the chicken, thyme, and garlic into the onions and continue cooking until the onions are translucent and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes more.

Stir the reserved pasta water into the mixture and remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the drained pasta and toss to coat. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the pasta and stir.
