Chicken + Pesto + Asparagus + Miso Butter = Quick and easy weeknight dinner. Pesto is my one of my favorite toppings because it takes 5 minutes to make and goes with EVERYTHING, except maybe chocolate cake.
- 4 large chicken breasts, boneless/skinless OR bone-in/skin on
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 cups fresh basil (or parsley, or cilantro) -- no need to remove the stems
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts (you can also use walnuts or almonds--- be sure to toast for maximum nut flavor!
- 2-4 cloves of garlic --- depending on how garlicky you like it
- Olive Oil
