Ingredients
  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  3. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 3 tablespoons basil pesto (Try my homemade recipe!)
  5. 1 medium onion, chopped
  6. 2 stalks celery, chopped
  7. 2 carrots, sliced
  8. 3 cups low sodium or homemade chicken broth.
  9. Garnish with sliced parmesan.
Instructions
  1. Warm up oil in a large pot.
  2. Add in sliced chicken breasts, garlic and pesto over medium heat until cooked.
  3. Add the mirepoix (onions, celery, carrots) and cook until vegetables are soft.
  4. Pour in the broth and simmer over low heat for 20 mins.
Notes
  1. Pesto is full of anti-oxidants and protein. But if you're in the mood throw in a cup of dark leafy greens for an extra burst of vitamins.
