Lemon Pepper Chicken and Pasta for #WeekdaySupper

I have been obsessed with Skillet meals these days. I don’t know why, it’s like when Spring comes and you break out the grill! Well for me, when Winter comes I break out the Crock Pot and Skillets! I think it’s because it’s so easy to throw in all of your favorite ingredients and just make it up as you go! Or maybe it’s because you usually only have to dirty one or two pots and your serving dishes and dinner is ready to go. I’ve been experiencing with making my own sauces lately and I’m loving it. There are plenty of nights when I pop open a jar for convenience but I love knowing I’ve made it from scratch.

  1. homemade sauce and pasta with peas? you’re a woman after my own heart! 🙂 Love it! These are some of our favorite types of meals! Plus, can’t not enjoy the lack of dishes that come with making one pot/skillet meals!

    1. I’m addicted to skillet meals these days Alice! The one pot meals are the best.
