Basil Pesto Alfredo Chicken

enough said right? YUM!

Do you ever get in one of those moods that you just absolutely need to try something new? I picked up this magazine the other day that was just chicken recipes. Everything from what to do with those roasted chickens you buy at the store, to how to properly cut the chicken, and chicken wings… its just absolutely full of new recipes I just can’t wait to try!

The BF and I have been talking about getting more healthy and watching portion sizes. We started splitting meat such as steak and pork chops into bags of one each, so we can have a full meal with vegetables and starch and meat. Well just starch and meat for the BF I guess.. I wish he would eat more veggies. But hey, this was definitely a huge hit with him so thats a plus!

 

Basil Pesto Alfredo Chicken

spaghetti for two
 1 (1o ounce) jar of alfredo pasta sauce
1/3 cup basil pesto
1/4 cup milk
2 chicken breasts
1 cup broccoli cut up

Cook spaghetti according to package. Grill the chicken until cooked all the way through and slice/pull apart. Also, while the spaghetti is boiling, in a bowl combine the pasta sauce, pesto, and milk. When there is only a couple minutes left on the spaghetti add the broccoli.

Once the spaghetti and broccoli is done drain and add the sauce and chicken. Mix well until heated through. Serve with garlic bread.
