Our red bell pepper pesto is packed with rich flavor, but it’s not spicy, making it the perfect sauce for everyone in the family. We top juicy chicken breasts with the pesto and serve it on top of a bed of kale and our orzo-grain blend, which features quinoa, chickpeas, teff, millet, and barley for a delicious and healthy meal.
Chicken with Red Pepper Pesto
- 2-4 chicken breasts
- 8-16 oz orzo blend
- 5-10 oz kale
- 4-8 oz red pepper pesto
1) Place a wire roasting rack into a Suvie pan. Cut open packages with the chicken. Place the chicken breasts on the roasting rack set within the Suvie pan.
2) Run red pepper pesto under warm water to thaw. Squeeze an equal amount of red pepper pesto over each chicken breast. Place chicken in the top zone of Suvie.
3) Before opening, tap orzo blend and kale packages against the countertop to break up any large pieces. Add orzo blend and kale to a separate Suvie pan. Season with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp salt, and freshly ground black pepper (season with 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 tsp salt if cooking a 4 person serving). Place pan in the bottom zone of Suvie.
Input settings and cook now. Be sure to select “Yes” when asked if cooking from frozen.
