Pesto Chicken and Steamed Broccoli
Talk about EASY! Well, actually Austen made this one, she's fantastic: tending to the baby and making me dinner. I've pretty much got it made, eh!?
Seriously however, this one is pretty easy. I think a monkey could be trained to steam broccoli. For the chicken simply saute a few chicken breast tenders in some butter, add pesto (either homemade or jarred), then near the end Austen likes to toss in a few chick peas and sun-dried tomatoes (yeah, I know, not technically Paleo, but unprocessed and they do not affect us negatively and add a lot of flavor). In place of chick peas add: nothing. In place of sun-dried tomatoes either add regular sliced tomatoes or nothing. Just Pesto chicken is good enough on it's own!
We served this little ditty up with a huge dinner salad of mixed greens, carrots, etc.
