Ingredients

  • 4 medium Chicken Breast
  • 1 recipe whole30 pesto (see below)
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes chopped (not packed in oil)
  • 1/2 cup black olives chopped
  • 1 pound apsaragus
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes sliced
  • 2 tbs walnuts, chopped for garnish, optional

Whole30 Pesto

  • 5 cups loosely packed basil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Prepare pesto by adding the basil (stems removed) to a food processor bowl, and processing until greens are chopped finely.
  • Add the lemon juice, walnuts and sea salt, and begin to process. While the mixture is chopping, slowly drizzle the olive oil into the food processor bowl.
  • Add the grated garlic and mix to combine.
  • Take each chicken breast, and pound it flat. I recommend putting the chicken into a large plastic bag to prevent chicken juice from splattering in your kitchen.
  • Take each flattened breast, and add ΒΌ of the pesto mixture, and 2 tablespoons each sundried tomatoes and olives. Roll up the chicken breasts, and place into a baking dish.
  • Bake the chicken for 20-24 minutes, until the juices run clear and the chicken is fully baked.
  • Saute asparagus, and serve with sliced chicken and cherry tomatoes. Garnish with chopped walnuts for a delicious nutty flavor and texture.
