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

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)

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.

About 1c frozen Peas

Spray crockpot with butter flavored cooking spray. Cut link in half long way, then slice in half (Moons), or diced. Add in all ingredients.
