I feel like I eat a lot of chicken….its pretty versatile and super available (also its frequently on sale). But, if you’re like me, you can get BORED as all get out with it. So I decided to try something a little different to zazz it up.
I modified a recipe I found on Pinterest to suit my lazy level. And it worked pretty well. Also it was really easy.
So it’s really easy to make this…you need 3 things: chicken breasts, pesto, and cheese (this girl used mozzarella string cheese).
You start by slicing your chicken in the middle (I didn’t cut all the way through…I left one side connected). Open that guy up and spread on about 1-2 Tbs pesto and then layer on some cheese. Close it up and bake for about 45 mins on 350. NOM NOM.
The side dish is super easy as well…are you sensing a theme here?
Garlic Mashed Cauliflower
-Small to Medium head of Cauliflower
-1 Tbs cream cheese
-spices (I use Montreal Chicken Spice and salt and pepper)
Start by chopping your cauliflower into small pieces. Boil them until soft. While hot, add the rest of the ingredients and mash/blend (a food processor/immersion blender work great). Then BOOM you’re done.
It’s not very much work and it makes for a tasty meal!
