Lunch prep: Pesto Chicken

August 30, 2018

Firstly, my all-clear letter arrived. Huzzah! The boobs survive another year!

This summer I tried to be creative with the meals I made for my own lunches. In this last week before WM heads back to school and I start bulk baking chicken for the both of us (his end up in sandwiches, so I can’t really go crazy with veg and sides), I tried a pesto chicken dish. I pinned this one from Tasty.com.

I decided to leave my pesto cubes frozen for when I don’t have any more fresh basil available. Since my basil plants are growing like gangbusters (although I should leave them alone for a few weeks) I made a half-batch of pesto for this recipe. It really looked great while cooking it.


And while it’s much oilier than I’d like for lunch, it’s really fragrant and tasty. I have four portions for this workweek. And look! They look almost like the original pin!

Four lunches

UGH that picture is irritating because of that nonmatching container. This is why I could never be a food blogger. (That, and cooking talent.) Let’s try it again.

Three matching containers

Last week’s Honey Lemon Chicken Bowls tasted great after cooking, but lost all of its flavor upon reheating. I was disappointed. I’ll try it one more time with more garlic and seasonings.

    I swear food with honey has no flavor.

    Speaking of food, drinks/apps or dinner soon? I am out of town next week but back after 9/10.
