Seasoning is Everything

Part of the magic of Gluten Free White Wine Lemon Chicken Pasta is both the chicken and the pasta sauce comes from Outside Table’s Friday Fennel. A balance of sweet and savory, the first and main ingredient is organic fennel. Garlic and onion join the cast of characters in this spice that perfectly accents without overpowering.

Outside Table offers a line of certified organic spices and sauce. From a bold barbecue rub to a spice blend that’ll put the fiesta in any taco night they have something for every cook. Crafted in small batches, they’re Gluten Free and free from soy and nut products.

In addition to Friday Fennel, this dish gets a double dose of citrus from both citrus infused vinegar and olive oil. The citrus olive oil is echoed in both the chicken marinade as well as the pasta sauce. If you don’t have citrus olive oil on hand, you can substitute with your favorite light tasting olive oil.

Getting Saucy with Gluten Free White Wine Lemon Chicken Pasta

The sauce for this pasta comes together quickly. Once you have everything chopped and ready to go, known as your mise en place, it’s juts a matter of getting your kale a little crispy and reducing your wine.

Yes, kale! The light bright flavors of this dish perfectly compliment the kale. For this dish I recommend using Tuscan kale, sometimes called dinosaur kale. It’s more delicate texture and flavor makes it both quick cooking and universally appealing.

For the lemon in this sauce, you’re going to remove either end and slice the lemon paper thin. You want to see through the slices like a beautiful stained glass.

The only other tip for this quick and easy Gluten Free White Wine Lemon Chicken Pasta is decided on the wine. Make sure it’s something you enjoy drinking as the flavor will concentrate as it cooks down and evaporates.
