Healthy Chicken Pesto

IMG_2374

I seem to post about this pesto recipe a lot but, I can’t help it! I love how versatile it is and how you can change up a few ingredients depending on what is in your fridge. It’s so easy and it is seriously great for leftovers not to mention the nutrients that pack a punch.

The pesto itself is quite simple and is based off of Joyous Health’s recipe 

For mine I used about:

1/2 cup of walnuts

1 cup of spinach

1/2 cup of fresh parsley

1/4-1/2 cup of evoo

1 large clove of garlic

1 tbsp of hemp seeds

I boiled about 3-4 cups of spaghetti (whatever kind you would like)

Grill one large organic chicken breast just seasoned with salt and pepper

Once the spaghetti and chicken are cooked strain pasta and pour pesto mixture all over the warm spaghetti

To make it creamy I used one 4oz log of goat cheese

Stir until the mixture has fully coated all of the noodles

Cut chicken into strips

Dump spaghetti mixture into a large serving plate and place chicken on top

Optional – I like to add sautéed organic tomatoes on top along with salted pumpkin seeds and hemp hearts

Enjoy!
