Easy Lemon Chicken and Pasta

Last night I had a rotisserie chicken and not much time. I made this which turned out to be delicious.

Serves 6

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
1 box rotini pasta

3 tbls olive oil
5 cloves garlic
1 can chicken stock

grated lemon rind from 2 lemons
juice of 2 lemons
handful of fresh herbs (I used basil, oregano, and chives)
1/2 cup grated parmeseano reggiano cheese

Shred the chicken into a bowl.
In a pan saute the garlic in the olive oil; add the chicken stock and chicken bones and bring to a boil. Let simmer 10-15 minutes. (You could omit the bones) until reduced by half. Remove bones and season with salt & pepper.

Cook the pasta in boiling water. While it's cooking chop the herbs and grate the cheese and lemon. When the pasta is done, drain and add to the chicken. Add the stock, herbs, cheese, lemon rind and juice. Toss, correct seasonings, serve.
