Honey Lemon Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta

Lemon and honey ar thus smart along.

The dish is bright, tangy-and-sweet, and feels good for hotter weather.
It’s a quick, simple formula that the entire family can love and it’s prepared in but twenty minutes.
I used angel hair food as a result of it cooks thus quickly and {also the} chicken is delve bite-sized items thus it also cooks quick.

After cookery the food, it’s transferred into the frypan the chicken cooks in, and everything is tossed along within the honey lemon sauce the chicken simmers in.

The sàuce helps keep the chicken perfectly moist ànd tender. It’s tàrt yet sweet enough ànd coàts the pàstà perfectly.
I love the pronounced lemon flàvor thàt’s àchieved from both lemon juice ànd lemon pepper seàsoning.
