MrsDrPoe: Lemon Pepper Chicken Pasta

It's that time again, folks: What's for Dinner Wednesday! Today we'll look at a very lite pasta dish for two that we absolutely love: Lemon Pepper Chicken Pasta.

Ingredients: 3 tablespoons olive oil (lemon infused is fantastic), 1 tomato (diced), 6-8 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast (chopped), 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning, pasta (cooked), 1 teaspoon salt (not pictured), 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (not pictured).

Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to a medium skillet on medium-high. Add the chicken, garlic powder, lemon pepper seasoning, Italian seasoning, and salt. Cook until the chicken is done (approximately 15 minutes), stirring occasionally. Turn the heat down to low-medium, and add the tomato and the remaining olive oil; allow the mixture to cook for 2-5 more minutes until the tomato softens a bit:

Add cooked, drained noodles to the skillet, and toss in the mixture, coating the noodles in the oil and mixing in the chicken and tomatoes. Then enjoy!
