  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste

  • 2 ½ cups milk

  • 3 cubes chicken bouillon

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 cup cold water

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • ½ pound seasoned grilled chicken chunks

  • 1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste


  1. Heat butter and olive oil together in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until tender but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add milk, bouillon, oregano, salt, and pepper to onion mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook sauce for 5 minutes.

  2. Whisk cold water and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth. Mix cornstarch mixture and chicken into sauce; cook until heated through and thickened, about 5 minutes.

  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.

  4. Turn heat under saucepan with sauce to low; add lemon juice, parsley, and lemon zest and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Add pasta, toss to coat, and transfer to a serving bowl; top with Parmesan cheese.
