    On a separate cutting board, cover chicken breasts with plastic wrap. Using a heavy object, gently pound to a uniform thickness of ½". Add pasta to boiling water and cook until al dente, 3-5 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta water and drain in a wire-mesh strainer.

Add white wine, squeeze juice of half the lemon over pan, and cook until liquid is mostly reduced, 1-2 minutes. Add cream and reserved pasta water to sauce.
