Lemony Linguine with Chicken, Sugar Snap Peas and Mint

I started making this several years ago, the trial run was when I was working at LuVici's for lunch one day. Served it to numerous customers in the restaurant that day & it got a "thumbs up" from everyone! 
It just screams SPRING!!!!


Lemony Linguine with Chicken, Sugar Snap Peas and Mint 
 Cooking Club of America

This creamy pasta gets a bright counterbalance from lemon, chives and mint. Look for stringless sugar snap peas in the produce aisle, to save time on preparation.
8 oz. linguine 
12 oz. sugar snap peas
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup chopped shallots
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup lower-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon lemon peel
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 Cook pasta according to package directions, adding peas during last 3 to 5 minutes; drain. 
2 Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cook chicken 3 to 5 minutes or until no longer pink on the outside, stirring frequently. Add shallots and garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. 
3 Add broth and cream. Increase heat to high; bring to a boil. Boil until sauce is slightly thickened and chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove from heat; stir in mint, chives and lemon peel. 
4 Toss pasta and peas with chicken mixture in large bowl; sprinkle with cheese.
