This pesto chicken is so easy and a welcome change to the regular chicken and rice.  I love that it has the side dish recipe and everything.  It's a perfect get together meal for my family!This was such a lovely meal.

And a great change from the regular.

My mom and I got together to prepare this dish based off a similar dish we had as a family the week before that was made with shrimp.  The shrimp was great, but expensive.  So we thought we would make out own version with chicken.

1st I make the pesto (find the pesto recipe here), but you could use bottled. And then I made the Basil and Feta Rice with Zucchini and Tomatoes as the side dish.

It was a great pair and we had fun preparing the meal together.

The whole meal is gluten free and very cost effective.
