Garlic Pesto Chicken with Tomato Cream Penne
This chicken was DIVINE!!!! It was so so good I really could have made myself sick if we would have had more left because I would have kept on chowing down!!
The pasta, it was ok. It lacked flavor. But I find whole wheat pasta always tastes more cardboardy. And instead of half and half, I used skim milk! So yeah that was probably part of the problem, cutting calories never gives the same great flavor. But I will add pesto to the sauce next time.
1/2 bottle of lawrys Herb and Garlic Marinade
2 large spoonfuls of Pesto
2 boneless chicken breasts.
Cut chicken into one inch strips. Using same knife make slits into chicken. Pour lawrys marinade and pesto over chicken. Marinate over night (I did mine Sunday morning and cooked mine Monday evening so it marinated a while!!)
8 ounces of your choice of pasta (I used whole wheat penne)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 cloves of garlic
2 spoonfuls of pesto
1/2 cup of chicken broth
8 ounces of tomato sauce
1 cup of half and half
Boil water and start on noodles.
Pour entire batch of chicken, marinade and all, into skillet and cook chicken fully (the marinade will evaporate/cook down)
Heat olive oil, cook garlic. Add pesto. Simmer in chicken broth until half has cooked down. Add tomato sauce. Then add milk. Simmer for 5 minutes. Toss pasta in. Add flour if it needs to be thickened. Place chicken on top.
Bacon, jalapenos and extra sauce. Mmm.

DO YOU SEE THIS MASCARA? THIS MASCARA IS CALLED MAYBELLINE THE ROCKET VOLUME EXPRESS
I WENT TO GO BUY MASCARA THE OTHER DAY AND THIS SHIT WAS ONE DOLLAR CHEAPER THAN MY USUAL MASCARA (rimmel sexy curves) SO I BOUGHT IT (because I’m a fool of a took) AND I COULD WRITE SONNETS ABOUT THE WAYS IN WHICH IT IS TERRIBLE
THE BRISTLES ARE ODDLY SHORT AND DON’T CATCH YOUR LASHES PROPERLY EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE RUBBER OR PLASTIC OR SOME PINE NEEDLE SHIT
IT CLUMPED ALL OF MY EYELASHES IMMIDIATELY UPON IMPACT AND THEY WOULDN’T SEPARATE EVEN WHEN USING AN EYELASH COMB
IT WOULD NOT COME OFF. AND NO IT IS NOT THE WATERPROOF KIND BECAUSE I CHECKED FOR THAT BEFORE AND AFTER BUYING IT. I USED MAKEUP REMOVER TWICE, CLEANSED MY FACE WITH THE STRENGTH OF GASTON, TONED LIKE OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN IN THE 80’S, AND STILL HAD OPAQUE BLACK STREAKS DOWN MY FACE.
YOU KNOW HOW YOU BUY MASCARA AND YOU’RE SO EXCITED TO USE IT AND THEN THE FIRST TIME YOU DO IT’S LIKE THE HEAVENS OPEN UP AND LITTLE CHERUBS FLOAT DOWN FROM PEARLESCENT CLOUDS AND KISS YOUR EYELASHES GENTLY AND YOU FEEL LIKE YOU CAN DO ANYTHING AND THAT BEYONCE HERSELF HAS NODDED AT YOU AND WHISPERED “FIERCE”
USING THIS FOR THE FIRST TIME WAS MORE LIKE POOPING IN A PUBLIC TOILET
ON A SCALE OF ONE TO HORRENDOUS I WOULD GIVE IT ELEVEN MILLION STARS
this is the best review of any product ever
Pretty much hilarious.
