Pesto Chicken Caprese

Happy Tuesday!  I’m finally back into the swing of things after a weekend out in West Texas. Brandon and I had so much fun in Lubbock minus a terrible Texas Tech loss. At least there was a winery near by to take out the sting of a loss. We had so much fun living the west Texas life and the weather could not have been better.

After a weekend away, I like to get back on track with eating healthier but I have to slowly ease into it because cold turkey doesn’t work well for me. Anytime we go to the grocery store (HEB) we pick up these already marinated chicken breasts. They are $4 and we toss them in our freezer to save until there is a night when we are just not in the mood to cook. We either eat them as they are with a spinach salad as a side or I dress them up a bit.

My dressed up version includes fresh mozzarella (my fave), a little bit of sauce and a drizzle of Balsamic glaze. It’s so easy and makes me feel like I’m having a fancier meal.

A few tips

You can pair this with a spinach salad or pasta
If your grocery store doesn’t offer already marinated pesto chicken, you can easily create the marinate at home. Place two chicken breasts in a large ziploc bag, then add olive oil, basil (either fresh or dried), and garlic. Let it marinate for a few hours then bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes

This week we are going to enjoy three Blue Apron meals. I plan on sharing more about it next week so be on the look out for that.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Xo, Heather
