Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta

Wow! This was delicious! My husband went crazy over it!

2-4 grilled chicken breasts, sliced
1/2 - 1 lb penne pasta, cooked al dente
1/2 stick butter
2-3 lemons, juiced
3/4 c heavy cream
1/4 c half & half
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper, to taste
10-15 fresh basil leaves, chopped (you can add more if you like)

Cook pasta, reserving 1 cup of hot pasta water when you drain. Set pasta aside.  In same pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add lemon juice. Whisk together. Add cream & half & half. Whisk until hot. Add Parmesan cheese. Whisk until melted. Add salt & pepper. Add hot pasta water if needed to loosen the sauce. Add pasta & chopped basil. Stir well. Add sliced chicken. Yum!!!
