 Ingredients List

  • 2-3 chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flake
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted European (cultured) butter
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flake
  • 1 pound fresh egg linguine
  • 1-2 tablespoons cracker black pepper olive oil


Heat grill or grill pan over medium heat. Pound chicken breasts to 1/2-inch thickness. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and red pepper flake. Spread olive oil evenly over the chicken. Grill chicken for 8 minutes on one side, flip and cook until internal temperature reaches 165 F (or until no longer pink inside). Remove chicken from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a small pot, bring heavy cream and butter to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add half of the parmesan cheese, red pepper flake, salt and pepper. Simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

Add pasta to the boiling water and cook to al dente. If you are using fresh pasta, it should only take 3 minutes. If you have dried pasta, cook according to package directions, about 10 minutes. Drain pasta and shake off excess water. Add hot pasta to the cream pot and toss to coat. Pour into a large dish, sprinkle with cracked black pepper olive oil and top with grilled chicken.
