Recipe for Baked Chicken Stuffed with Pesto and Cheese (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)

Recipe for Baked Chicken Stuffed with Pesto and Cheese (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)
(For Phase One Fridays I highlight Phase One recipes from the past that have been my personal favorites, and this recipe for Baked Chicken Stuffed with Pesto and Cheese is something I've made over and over. It's also been one of the most popular recipes on the blog for a while now; hope you enjoy if you haven't tried it yet!) For several weeks now I've been keeping an eye on the basil plants in my garden, hoping to get one more batch of pesto in the freezer before the plants started to freeze. For the last few days the leaves were starting to look a little brown on the edges, so today I trimmed the plants vigorously and made a big batch of pesto. Then I made this Chicken Stuffed with Pesto and Cheese! I'm always wanting to adapt recipes every time I make them, and when I looked at the old version of this I knew I wanted to change it. Use very large chicken breasts for this and then pound the heck out of them until they're as thin as you can possibly get them! Instructions:

Sunday Smoothie: Avocado & Banana After a couple of crazy combos it is time to get back to a classic. So this Sunday we have the avocado and banana smoothie. One thing I discovered drinking this one is that the avocado really enhances the banana. So you won’t feel the avocado very much, but rather a buttery banana taste Ingredients: 1 avocado chopped, 1 banana, 1 cup sweet yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey Confetti Bean Salad This Confetti Bean Salad is my number one, most-requested dish at any party, cookout, or get-together. It’s vibrant, veggie-packed, super-easy-to-make, and nicely satisfying with lots of protein and fiber! This is sure to become one of your go-to recipes, I promise! This salad is a wonderful appetizer, snack, side dish, or even a light meal when eaten with whole-grain tortilla or pita chips. Yum! My mom LOVES this salad, and always asks, (really sweetly and sorta pleadingly) “Will you please bring the Confetti Bean Salad??”

Garlic bread spaghetti squash » The Lovely Bits Okay, vacation is over for me {Michele}, and back to the normal day to day. We went up to Cape Cod for a few weeks and really got to turn off all electronics and just sit around and do nothing. Now, back in the city and feel like we left wearing floaty dresses, and came back bundled up in sweaters. I guess Autumn is here. If the Farmer’s Almanac is to be believed, we are in for a super chilly winter, so, I guess it is time to start digging out the winter clothes, and more importantly, start getting ready for all the fun winter food to be made. I love summer produce and how bright and fresh it is, but, my favorite time of year to cook is Fall.

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps Update 6/2012: Taken after the model of these delicious wraps, I threw these together for dinner one night nearly three years ago in a frantic attempt to feed my hungry family and use ingredients I already had on hand. And the result was such a smashing success that we’ve continued to enjoy this recipe at least monthly since (and that’s saying a lot coming from the lady who doesn’t repeat many meals). Full of flavor, these wraps are a snap to make. The method turns out a delightfully crunchy tortilla that is filled with rice, chicken, beans, spices and cheese. And they make great leftovers. I just love it when a meal happens to fit all the criteria I love: healthful, fast, delicious.
