Manic Monday~ Vegetable and Chicken Pasta

This is one of my favorite things to whip together.  It's actually a pretty cheap meal, if you have the chicken already. 

Vegetable and Chicken Pasta

4 Chicken Breast

1/4 Small Red Onion Chopped
Box of Angel Hair Pasta (I used white, but the wheat is good too)
2 Small Zucchini
2 Small Squash
Hand Full of Italian Parsley Chopped (or from your spice cabinet)
1/4 C. Balsamic Vinegar
3-4 Tbs. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Small Container of Cherry Tomatoes
Salt and Pepper to Taste
2 Small Lemons
1 tsp. Lemon Zest

Heat up 2 Tbs. of the olive oil and then brown your onions.  After a few minutes, add your chicken at a low heat.  Once the chicken is about half way done, start your pot of water and cook noodles according to package.  Then add your chopped zucchini, squash, parsley, vinegar, and lemon zest.  Then cut your lemons in half and squeeze the juice over the mixture.  Make sure to keep the seeds from getting into your chicken and veggies.  Once the chicken and vegetables are finished cooking, add the cherry tomatoes.  These do not need to cook long, about 3-5 minutes. Then add your chicken and vegetables to a large bowl with the cooked pasta.  I will add a small amount of olive oil at this point just to make sure everything is coated.
