One-pan dinners are truly 2 dishes in 1

I had a wonderful time visiting with my grandma last week. We did not do much of anything except for watching movies, eating yummy food and laughing at each other’s jokes. Haha!

Lol, I know I’ve said this before, but I love one pan dinners. They are so easy to make and clean up. Ha, one of the things I like about them is you don’t have to worry about having a side dish because the veggies you chose to go along with your meat is a side. You can just think of them as 2 dishes in 1 😀

Today I’m sharing with you an incredible flavorful one-pan dinner called One-Pan Pesto Chicken and veggies. The preparation of this dish was easy as 1-2-3 and would make an excellent meal for a weeknight dinner for you and your family. Also, I would like to say that I have never tasted pesto before until last night, and lol it felt like my taste buds were having a party.

One-Pan Pesto Chicken and veggies

Ingredients

2 Tbsps olive oil
1 lb chicken thighs or breasts, boneless and skinless, sliced into strips
1/3 C. sun-dried tomatoes, drained of oil, chopped
1 lb asparagus, ends trimmed, cut in half, if large
1/4 C basil pesto
1 C cherry tomatoes, yellow and red, halved

Instructions

1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add two tablespoons of olive oil, combine the sliced chicken thighs or breasts, season chicken generously with salt, add half of chopped sun-dried tomatoes – and cook everything on medium heat for five-ten minutes, flipping a couple of times, until the chicken is finished cooking.

2. Remove the chicken and sun-dried from the skillet, leaving the oil. Combine the asparagus (ends trimmed), seasoned generously with salt, add the remaining half of sun-dried tomatoes, and cook on medium heat for five-ten minutes until the asparagus cooked thoroughly. Remove asparagus to serving plate.

3. Add the chicken back to the skillet, add pesto, stir to coat on low-medium heat until chicken is cooked through, 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add halved cherry tomatoes, mix with the pesto and the chicken. Add chicken and vegetables to the serving plate with asparagus.
