April 15, 2020

This meal contains 3 recipes. The Pesto, the chicken, and the cheesy potatoes.

You will need to pesto in order to make this chicken. The potatoes are a side so they are of course optional but they do make this meal complete!


2 bundles of fresh parsley

4-5 cloves garlic

1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan

1/4 cup pine nuts (you can use walnuts if you can’t find pine nuts)

salt and pepper to taste

approximately 1/2 cup of olive oil

Add all the ingredients except the oil to a food processor or blender. Mix on high for about 45 seconds, gradually adding in the olive oil. The amount of olive oil may vary. You want the mixture to be a paste-like consistency.
