I am so proud of this one you guys! This was one of those “oh my goodness it’s 4 o’clock and I have nothing planned for supper” kind of meals. I dug through the fridge and found the fresh cilantro we had from the farmers market, found the farfalle from our last trip to Trader Joe’s in the pantry, and quick picked up a rotisserie chicken from the store. I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out (mixing the strong flavor of fresh cilantro with the crisp lemon pepper) but it was so yummy! My husband told me it was the best thing I have ever made and I could open up a restaurant with this pasta dish! It is so simple to make too!
