Homemade basil pesto with chicken, and avocado pasata!

Can you say YUM!? This dish was so incredibly easy to create, yet so delicious. The pesto sauce is homemade and it was my first time making it. I found the pesto recipe on Food Network. Check out the instruction from the site, it’s super simple to recreate.

Ingredients for chicken & pasta:

  • 2 packs of thinly sliced chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoon Montreal chicken spice
  • 2 tablespoon Chilli powder
  • 2 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 box of pasta of your choice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • squirt of lemon juice

Instructions:

  1. Cook the pasta according to the box.
  2. Marinate the chicken with olive oil, Montreal chicken spice, garlic, and chilli powder. Mix it well and start grilling/pan fry it.
  3. Cut the avocados open. Place the avocados, garlic cloves, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a blender. Allow it to blend until it has a creamy consistency. Mix it in with the pasta.
  4. Now you can start placing it on your place. First add the pasta, then chicken and pesto sauce.

Enjoy! Let me know your recipe for pesto, so I can try it! πŸ™‚

Much Love,
