Grilled Chicken & Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Rolls

Marinade for the Chicken:
1/3 cup lime juice
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp grated ginger (I freeze my ginger it lasts longer and is super easy to grate)
1 tbsp grated garlic
1 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp sugar

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, put 1/4 cup of the mixture in a  plastic Ziploc bag and then toss in the chicken marinade for 20 minutes up to 2 hrs.
2. Grill Chicken, and then cut into 1 in pieces (wish I would have taken a pic of just the chicken because it was gorgeous grilled)!

For Angel Hair pasta salad
12 oz of pasta
**Reserved marinade**
1 Red pepper diced
1 Yellow pepper diced
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (be careful here, I am a wimp with hot spices, I usually leave this out and my husband who loves it spicy will then put in saracha sauce instead)
2 green onions

** Disclaimer: I made this before going to the store and I didn't have any bell pepper, so I am using what ever I have in my fridge (I am thinking since this has some Asian undertones that some carrots, broccoli, and onion will be fine and add good color) I think sometimes when you have a great base like this that it is easy to just mix and match with whatever you have. This is a great meal to have when you are in need of a grocery store stop.
