The holidays can be such a busy time for many families. Decorating, buying and wrapping presents, lots of fun holiday events and parties and more. While all of these things are fun, they often leave little time for your normal day-to-day things like cleaning or cooking.

I wanted to make a simple recipe that would be perfect for the holidays that is not only delicious but pretty healthy too. I used the last of my summer homegrown cherry tomatoes and peas for a boost of nutrients. What is nice about this dish is that it is a one-dish meal. You don't need any side dishes with it which makes it even simpler.

I used store-bought pesto which I have actually never used before. My mom is awesome at making pesto so we usually just have that. I was pretty impressed! This dish is loaded with flavors and comes together in about 15 minutes or less. I love it!

Directions:
1. Over medium heat, add olive oil to a pan. Add chicken and sauté until chicken is cooked though and lightly browned. Cut into strips.

Enjoy! See how easy that was? Dinner in a flash. This dish turned out awesome! Adalyn loved it as did I. My husband is crazy and doesn't like pesto so I made the same dish for him using tomato sauce. He enjoyed that!
