Pesto Chicken Pasta (Meal Prep)

Some of my clients find it easiest to eat food that feels nourishing if they follow a meal prep schedule. This can be extremely repetitive (if that doesn't bother you then that is great!) but it doesn't have to be. This recipe is an example of a simple meal prep that is not your boring protein with veggies.

  • 1 box Barilla Chickpea pasta (or other pasta of choice, this one is a good source of protein!)

  • 2-3 chicken breasts

  • 1/3 cup pesto sauce

  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (optional but encouraged both for flavor and added B vitamins + protein)

  • 1/2 of a red onion

  • 1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes

  • 1 1/2 cup spinach

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

  1. cut your chicken into bite sized pieces and season with Italian seasoning plus a dash of salt and pepper

  2. cook chicken in pan over medium heat until cooked through, stirring often.

  3. remove from heat and set aside

  4. bring a large pot of water to a boil

  5. reduce heat to medium and add pasta

  6. cook until pasta is al dente, drain water and set aside

  7. mix together greek yogurt and pesto sauce

  8. half each cherry tomato

  9. dice red onion

  10. cut spinach into thin strips

  11. In a large mixing bowl, add pasta, chicken, pesto-yogurt mixture, tomatoes, spinach, red onion, and nutritional yeast

  12. stir until evenly mixed

  13. serve or split into meal prep containers to eat throughout the week!
