Lemon Garlic Pasta With Grilled Chicken

I cook a lot. I usually cook everyday M-F. I would ask Daniel to switch in some nights, but I don't really like what he makes. Sorry Daniel, but your food is too bachelor for my taste. (He does try, so I will give him some props). During the week I like to stick to meals that take under 30 min. The quicker the better!

One of my favorites is Lemon Garlic Pasta with Grilled Chicken. In college I worked in Curves, and this meal comes from their Fitness & Weight Management Plan. Don't let the healthiness turn you off, I promise this is delicious! Daniel loves it, my little brother loves it, and it was a success at recipe club.
