Gluten and Milk Free Baked Chicken with Pesto, Asparagus & Potatoes
This is one of the BEST meals we have EVER eaten!!! I can not believe the flavor that the pesto/asparagus combo brought out. And the potatoes - I could have eaten 10 servings!!!
I found some nice looking green asparagus at the local supermarket yesterday and I had some chicken in the fridge and so searched to find a recipe that looked nice and was not pasta. I found the perfect one using google. I also found these really cool baked potatoes recipe on Pintrest (my favorite new site). The result was absolutely delicious!!!
The recipe for the chicken/asparagus/pesto is found on Start to Simmer's blog. The only alteration is that I used only pecorino cheese (as have intolerance to cow's milk).
I made my own pesto using standard recipe from Food network, only using only 1/2 cup oil in total.
The potatoes came from Fish Food's blog.
And as you can see in the pic above, the result was absolutely delicious! I do not think I have enjoyed a meal so much in a very very long time!
Here is a closer look at the pesto
