one chicken breast
one garlic clove
Mrs. Dash lemon pepper (2 tsp)
1 cup bowtie pasta
1 cup artichoke hearts
(I used frozen from Trader Joes)
one large lemon
one cup baby arugula
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
On medium heat, start cooking the pasta. In a small skillet at medium heat, start cooking chicken with 1 tsp olive oil. Top chicken with 1 tsp lemon pepper. Once chicken is almost cooked, chop garlic and add to skillet until golden brown. Once pasta is completely cooked, keep one 1/2 cup of reserved water from pot. Drain pasta but do not rinse. Add back to pot and add chicken, garlic, and artichoke. Mix and add reserved water. Mix again. Add in 1 tsp lemon pepper and 1/2 cup lemon juice. Mix. Serve with 1/2 cup fresh arugula. Salt and Pepper to taste.
The nutrition facts above do not have any added salt. The arugula will be eaten mixed in with the pasta to give added flavoring and to help you feel fuller.
