Bowtie Chicken Pesto

Jump to recipe

Tuesday we kick off our More Than Macros Retreat!! To say I’m excited is an understatement. Make sure you’re following along on Instagram! Thursday coach Amy and I will be doing a workshop titled, It Happens in the Kitchen. We’re going to discuss how we’ve found success with planning and preparing easy meals for our busy schedules. One way we’ve found success is by having a few go-to macro balanced recipes. This bowtie chicken pesto recipe is just that!

Common ingredients, easy to make, and bursting with a surprising amount of flavor. Chad actually got me hooked on this meal. I accidentally took one of his prepped meals to work one day last school year and was pleasantly surprised by it. I told him it was a keeper and made myself some the following week to take to work for lunch each day.

I typically don’t make it in one big serving like this, but figure doing so would make it much easier to share with a. my family and b. all of you. Need a side dish to take to a BBQ this summer? This is your recipe!

You’re basically going to cook all the ingredients and mix them together in a giant mixing bowl. This is the same mixing bowl I use for big batches of cookie dough and cinnamon rolls. You get the idea. Use your biggest bowl, it makes 10 servings.

    Do you serve this cold?

      You can, but I reheat it for lunch all week and it’s great hot.

    Awesome recipe, made this today and came out great .
    Quick question, this is 250 grams per serving?

      Yes, 250g. If you’re logging in Myfitnesspal you have the option to log it per gram if needed.
