Typical kid-friendly fare gets a zap of fresh flavor from pesto in this easy 15-minute dinner. Make a quick creamy chicken salad with Greek yogurt, pesto and peas and serve over pan-fried polenta. Serve with a salad of greens and balsamic vinaigrette for a healthy dinner the whole family will love.

I thought this recipe sounded gross at first, but I had all the ingredients. It seemed childish not to try it. It's one of the closet things to comfort food I've had since I started eating clean in November of 2020. I'm definitely making it again! Read More
