Easy Lemon Chicken Penne

I found this recipe and we loved it!!! It is healthy and super super delish. Not to mention very easy.

Lemon Chicken Penne

1 pound dried penne
2 chicken cutlets, cut into fingers ( I used breast)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan

In a deep sauce pan sautee chicken with salt and pepper. ( I dashed mine with a little McCormick Lemon Pepper Seasoning)

After you cook chicken, cut it up to your liking and set aside

Combine your olive oil, red pepper flakes, and garlic in sauce pan
Let simmmer on low heat while you cook the penne

Cook penne with 1/2 tbs salt

Let pasta cool just a bit

Pour your olive oil over the chicken in a mixing bowl

Combine with pasta and toss

Squeeze the lemons into the bowl and add the parmesan

Toss and enjoy!
