Hi Hi Hello! Happy Monday…??? Already?!? Where’s that in between Sunday-and-Monday day where I actually DO get to experience a weekend day? *All the ladies are nodding their heads*
My grandma used to say, “Don’t wish for that! One day it will come where you won’t have any kids to wash for or cook for … you will be sad, and you’ll be wishing for the old days to come back…” Ugh. That’s a scary thought, eh? NOT what we should be thinking about on a Monday! BUT it’s a good reminder for all of us.
Er. Let’s talk food!
Sometimes I just want simple winner-winner-chicken-dinner food. This was one of those times.
Lately, my workflow has evolved to meet the demands of this simple-food life, and I ain’t complainin’. Know why?
Because, this pesto chicken… she knows us. She knows how we do. She is packing in all the flavors of a creamy pesto sauce, but without the cream.
And. What’s more important to us all? That’s right. She makes it to us in just ONE PAN and in 30 MINUTES.
Raise your hand if you love this kinda foooood!! Of course you do! Why else would you be here??
What you’re looking at is a meal made with just 6-ish ingredients. Salt & Pep not included in the count.
We are talking chicken breasts, basil pesto, evaporated milk, flour, garlic, and cherry tomatoes. Spaghetti, too, if you’re the pasta kind. My husband is, so that photo down there was his dinner. I’m more of a chicken and a salad type-a-girl.
I am going to need you to just rub that chicken with pesto and brown it on the stovetop… then, you’ll whip up an evaporated milk flavor-bomb concoction, add it to the pan with the tomatoes, bring it to a boil, and boom. That’s it. Nothing more to it. Your tummy will thank you.
