Chicken breast is often the go-to in pasta recipes, but chicken oysters are actually the perfect accompaniment to this rustic dish. These small cuts of dark meat are so tender and flavorful, adding a layer of savory complexity to the aromatic cream sauce, enlivened with fresh rosemary and bright citrus.

Serving Suggestion: Chicken Breasts or Thighs can be substituted for the Oysters.

  • 1 TB Lemon zest
