Lemon-Pepper Butter Garlic Chicken Spaghetti

Spaghetti doesn’t always require tomato based sauce, does it? Nor does it have to be a creamy Alfredo. Don’t get me wrong, I like both kinds of sauces but sometimes I just want buttery, garlicky, lemony, and peppery flavors. That’s a lot of y there, HAH! Well, now that we’ve got that out of the way, here’s a very simple Lemon-Pepper Butter Garlic Chicken Spaghetti that you could whip up in a jiffy and I’m sure you’ve already got the ingredients in your pantry. If you don’t, well, time to stop by at the store and make THIS!

PS: We’re going to do a lot of eyeballing with the seasonings so prepare NOT to measure. ☺️
