Basil Pesto Chicken



My 12 year old son loves chicken and he certainly has his favorites. I am so bored of making the same old chicken recipes. Actually, I don’t have many chicken recipes because I don’t make too much of an effort when I cook it.

I decided to look for different ways to prepare chicken.. but they had to be easy too. I am finding that now all my kids are in school or preschool that my day is still busy or even busier then when I had the little ones home all day. I spend most of my day in my car picking them up or dropping them off and soon they will be back in after school activities so I will have less time in the kitchen.

Easy and delicious now has to become part of my daily lifestyle… during the week at least.
