Lemon Chicken Pasta Recipe

I'm really not a fan of cooking, but this recipe is perfect for me. Why you ask? It's easy, yummy, fast, healthy (in my book), and only uses like one pot. I saw it on Live with Regis and Kelly last week and decided to give it a try. It will go into our routine for dinnertime, and it's perfect for summer, served warm or cold. Try this one, hope you like it as much as we did :)

4 Chicken Breasts (salt / pepper to taste)
1 1/2 pounds Rotini Pasta
2 cups Grape Tomatoes, sliced in half
3 whole Lemons, 2 juiced-1 garnish
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan
1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley
Red Pepper flakes to taste
5 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1. Salt/pepper chicken breasts, grill until done then let sit covered 5 minutes
2. Cook Rotini Pasta according to box, drain when done and put back in pot
3. Slice Chicken
4. Add chicken, sliced tomatoes, olive oil, parsley, lemon juice and red pepper flakes (to taste) to pot with drained pasta
5. Toss pot to coat
6. Top with Parmesan, salt/pepper and extra lemon to taste*

*You can use any kind of pasta, I actually only had angel hair and it was de-lish!
*It was also raining outside and we didn't really prepare much for this dinner (which is why I love this recipe...) so I just grilled the chicken on the stove.

Sorry I didn't take a picture, we were just too hungry! :) Enjoy


P.S. My kids even liked it!
