Green Shicken Pasta Dinner

I said SHICKen is for dinner! Green Shicken!  I just absolutely love this quick go to meal for us when I’m needing to make a grand dinner but super fast.  From hindsight this meal does seem to appear that it’s going to take long.  I agree.  When it’s your first time making any new recipe it always just takes a bit longer because you must make time to gather all the ingredients but once you make this once or twice I guarantee this will also be one of your quick go to meals of the week! So let me share!

Green Shicken Pasta Dinner Recipe

  • 1 lb. of raw chicken
  • 1/2 lb. of uncooked noodles (any kind)
  • Drizzle of Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper for taste

Pesto Sauce (This is as exact as I can get because I normally just eyeball everything. I told you it’s my quick go to meal dinner.)

  • 1 cup of Virgin Olive Oil (I normally begin with 1/3 cup just in case I need more then I pour the rest in)
  • 1/2 of Parmesan cheese (shredded/powdered)
  • 2-3 big leaves of fresh Basil (fresh is the best)
  • 1/4 cup of raw almonds
  • Salt & Pepper for taste
