Having a hedonist moment? Want to live for the flavor, for the creamy sauce, for the butter-y eminence? Lean into your urges here, and indulge in this epicurean pasta-and-chicken meal. Falstaff would devour this meal that's all pleasure without an inch of guilt. (Unless you put that on yourself; we're not judging.) Crispy ciabatta croutons maximize the carbs, while garlic and lemon both cut and bring out the natural richness of the cream and butter. Live for the now, live for this meal. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.

Cut ciabatta into 1" dice.
Zest and halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.
Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.
Cook Pasta and Make Croutons
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes.
Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander. Set aside.
While pasta cooks, place diced ciabatta on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Spread into a single layer and toast in hot oven until browned, 8-10 minutes.
While ciabatta toasts, cook chicken.
Cook the Chicken

Add chicken to hot pan and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.
Transfer chicken to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.
Make the Sauce

Add cream, butter, and half the pasta cooking water. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, stir in pasta, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper until heated through. If too dry, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner.
Slice chicken into thin slices. Stir sliced chicken, Parmesan (reserve a pinch for garnish), 1 tsp. lemon juice, and a pinch of salt into pan.
