Lazy Single Girl Meal: Chicken, Red Pepper, Feta and Dill Pasta

Another name for my favorite lazy single girl mean is pretty much: Put anything you can find in your pantry in a pan and then on top of pasta. And, it doesn’t get much better than this. Red pepper? Could eat my weight in them. Feta? If you don’t like feta, we can’t be friends. Dill? What isn’t better with dill on it….seriously!

I know leftovers are controversial, but I love them because often times, I reuse different parts of my meal for something completely different. This chicken breast was part of a grilled chicken sandwich half that I had in the fridge. Yes, I’m super cheap.

Anything over pasta is a great single girl dish because you can make exactly how much you need…although typing “Serves One” can strike fear in some, I relish in the fact that it just means I can eat this with no pants on watching Storage Wars.
