Pesto Chicken

This pesto had such great color. It looked so fresh, which also made it look so healthy to me as well. I made a batch of pesto to pour over chicken for tonight’s dinner. I made my pesto using 3-1/2 cups of fresh basil, 1 entire head of garlic, 3/4 cup of walnuts, grated parmesan,…

Last night’s dinner reminded me of a simple, comfort supper that is great for any weeknight, but also works for impressing your guests.
