I’ve been on a bit of a pesto kick lately! I love the stuff! It goes well with SO many things! Yesterday I whipped some up quickly and tossed it through some zucchini noodles with a fried egg on top for lunch…. seriously good stuff!
There are a gazillion pesto recipes out there, so you can definitely find one to suit your taste! I’ve been making the pesto in this recipe a lot recently! In fact I’ve been making that particular recipe nearly every weekend! It’s become our signature weekend dish, with modifications here and there and we look forward to it each weekend!
For the recipe I’m posting for this blog I used another pesto recipe that I came across recently posted by the lovely Arsy of Rubies and Radishes. I used her ‘Macadamia Nut Pesto’ for this dish and it was DELICIOUS! It went so well with the chicken and I can see it pairing well with so many other things… actually this pesto is just delicious on its own full stop!
Notice that I used the term ‘rustic’ in my blog title… I use that term loosely here! That’s because my chicken (as you can see in the photo below) fell apart in the oven while baking. That’s because I didn’t have toothpicks to hold the chicken pieces in place while they baked so they kind of did their own thing in the oven! Not a problem though because they still came out tasting AMAZING! And paired with some whole roasted carrots and mushrooms it was even better! In fact Joe loved it so much that the night after I made this he said jokingly of course, “what’s for dinner tonight? I’m sure it can’t beat last night’s dinner!”
Ok enough chit chat… here’s the recipe!
