Stuck in a rut!

Okay, you know you are "stuck in a rut" when your 20-year old daughter, who really hasn't had an interest in cooking or baking, until now, is searching the internet for new things that Mom can make.   Last night we did just that, we (she & I) made the following recipe - which has no name because that part didn't print out (ha!).  We have taken the liberty to halve the recipe list for you, because we made the whole batch and it was BIG - so go ahead and double it if you are feeding say 6 or more people!  She also brought home a recipe for an Oreo Cheesecake pie -which is on the list of things to make and try (perhaps this weekend!)  Without further ado - I shall now type up the recipe whipped up last night in our kitchen and since we don't know the recipe's name - it shall now for my purposes be called Heather's Chicken Pasta  :)  Oh, and BTW - it was tasty!

Heather's Chicken Pasta
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/4 c. flour
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. lemon juice
1/2 pkg. cavatappi noodles

Take your chicken strips and coat lightly with flour.  Saute chicken in a pan with the butter, until cooked through.  Meanwhile, have a pot of water boiling for your pasta.  When chicken is done put chicken on a plate and set aside.  Into the pan you sauteed the chicken in put your lemon juice and chicken stock and let it come to a boil.  Add a few tablespoons of butter if you desire (we did!)  Bring to a boil and then turn off the heat and let it simmer.  Meanwhile, cook your pasta as directed on the package.  Drain.  Return pasta to pasta pot, pour in your lemon sauce.  Stir to coat noodles.  Add the chicken to your pasta pot and stir to coat.  Serve!  (p.s.  when you serve, feel free to sprinkle with parmesan cheese!) (again, I did!)
