Fettuccini Alfredo with Honey Lemon Pepper Chicken and Herbed Summer Green Beans

As a mom, my favorite dinners are the ones that get a "Wow" or two from the family.  This one did just that.

Marinate three chicken breasts in 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp Lemon Pepper seasoning, and 2 Tbsp honey for 30 minutes.

While the chicken is marinating, wash and stem 2 lbs of fresh green beans.  Place them in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and one chicken bullion cube.   Bring to a boil and cook for six minutes.  Drain and pour into serving bowl.

While the beans are cooking, break 1 lb of fettuccini into a large pot of boiling water with 1 Tbsp salt.  Boil for 11 - 13 minutes until it reaches desired doneness.  Pour two jars of your favorite Alfredo Sauce into a saucepan and heat over medium heat.

Place the chicken breasts on a hot grill pan and cook for six minutes on each side.  Remove from heat and turn over again.  Allow to sit on the grill pan for 6 more minutes before slicing.

To finish the beans, combine 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, 2 tsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp Rosemary leaves, 1/2 tsp Thyme, salt and pepper to taste.  Mix well and pour over the green beans.  Stir to coat.  Reheat in the microwave for one minute and then stir again.

To top it off, Emma made chocolate cupcakes with butter cream frosting.  Mmmmm!
