Pesto Chicken

Seriously!!! This recipe will look like you slaved for HOURS in the kitchen.

I have served this to company numerous times and they all come back for seconds.

But no need to spend all that time and effort in the kitchen because I have simplified it just for you. You’re welcome.

I have included my recipe for pesto sauce but whos kidding who? There’s nobody looking. If the thought of making your own pesto overwhelms you then buy the jarred pesto. Go ahead, I wont tell.

Dont forget to purchase the fresh Roma tomatoes to serve with this meal.

  • 2 Cups Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
