green with envy - pesto chicken | roasted asparagus | sauteed spinach

>> Tuesday, September 28, 2010

when i was planning this meal, i didn't realize everything was green. it doesn't make for the best presentation, but all i can say is that it still tasted good. this dinner doesn't involve any sort of effort. it's the perfect weeknight meal for a monday when you're still recovering from the weekend and don't feel like doing much besides laying on the couch to watch gossip girl/dancing with the stars.

for the main course i bought pre-marinated pesto chicken from trader joe's. you literally take it out of the package, place is on a cookie sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes on 425 degress. it's that simple and the end product is always perfectly seasoned and juicy! i'm usually not into the whole pre-packaged thing, but trader joe's definitely got it right with these guys.

for the sides, i whipped up my favorite garlic spinach with tomatoes and roasted garlic asparagus.

i know this is nothing fancy, but it's still a great, healthy meal to keep in your recipe box!
