Super lazy Chicken and Pasta

One of the perks of your child getting older is they can fend for themselves when it comes to dinner. Gone are those days when you just have to cook because you don't want them to eat crappy food. Yes sorry guys no matter what the commercials say chain food restaurants is still crappy food for the most part.

I've commented before how my lil mama and I though we live under the same roof sometimes due to our schedules can't sit down to dinner like we use to so we schedule dates. The other day after work though I was super tired, had numerous pictures to edit from a camera date I had gone out to and still wanted to squeeze in a workout and walk in the park. I always take out something each morning to prepare even if for lunch next day and this time it was my go to chicken tenders. I looked in my pantry and saw packet of Pasta sides Chicken flavor and just went with it.

Thursday's Treat...Super lazy Chicken and Pasta!!!

Ingredients:
-Knorr pasta sides packet
-pieces of chicken(tenders work best for small portion size)
-lemon pepper seasoning
-honey 
I told you this was super lazy you just handle your chicken as you normally would. I wash/rinse mine out with some lemon juice then cold water and seasoned with 2 tbsps of lemon pepper and 2 tbsps of honey. Let it sit for a few, turned my toaster oven to broil at 325 and prepared my baking sheet with strip of aluminum foil sprayed with some Pam so chicken wouldn't stick. I placed in toaster oven for 20 minutes turning once halfway.

Ten minutes in I prepared the water for the pasta side, 2 cups. You can add margarine or butter but I opted out and left with just the packet flavoring. I let it cook for 10 minutes. Turned off the flame set it aside cut my chicken into smaller pieces so I could sprinkle on my pasta.
Served myself and set a plate aside for lil mama when she got home.
It was tasty, fast and filling. Delish!

I love getting out of the kitchen with enough time to really engage in the things I love. I was able to edit while I ate(I don't always have gadgets on at dinner table but this was solo night me time) then head out to the park. Enjoy!

Always stress free xo
