pestochickenbaconcheesyrice2
An EXCELLENT combination. Pesto Chicken & Bacon with Asparagus served over Cheesy Rice and Red Pepper. Don’t skip or alter anything. Trust me!

1.5lb Chicken, cubed
1.5c Bacon Ends, cut smaller
1/2 8oz. jar Pesto
1T Grated Parmesan Cheese (Store shelf kind)
1/8tsp TO 1/4tsp Sea Salt (I did 1/4 – Optional)

1 can Asparagus, drained and cut smaller

2c uncooked Instant Rice
2c Water + ONE Chicken Broth Cube, crushed
1/3 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
3/4c Cheese Sauce (I use Prego Creamy Cheddar)
1tsp Grated Parmesan Cheese (Store shelf kind)
1/4tsp Pepper

Cherry Tomatoes, halved (For topping- Optional)

Cube Chicken. Marinade first FIVE ingredients for 5-6 hours.
Cook chicken and bacon in skillet (I Butter Flavor Cooking Sprayed, but, didn’t need to.), adding in asparagus near the end.
I microwave rice. Add water, rice, red bell pepper, and crushed broth cube into a bowl. Microwave according to directions.
Mix together: Cheese sauce, parm. cheese, and pepper. Stir into cooked rice.
Top pesto meat mix over rice. Top with halved cherry tomatoes (I forgot! Optional). Enjoy.

Notes: I was debating on how to cook this. If I should use rice, or make pasta with noodles. I decided rice. You could very well change this into a Pasta by skipping rice and using noodles.
Cutting back on Carbs? Zucchinis, sliced and halved, boil in salted water (Or broth) for 30 seconds to 1 minute… In place of Rice. Cheese sauce amount may need to be altered, less.
