Recipe Notes

*Recipe idea heavily adapted from cookingclassy.com

The end result is a one pan dinner that the whole family will love.

I think homemade roasted veggies and chicken is so comforting and one of my favorites to make at home. If your family loves pesto, this easy dinner is a must try. My kids were telling me last night as we ate it that “Everything tastes better with pesto, even vegetables.” 😀

Make this easy keto chicken pesto and veggies recipe for your own family.

There are so many variations for this pesto bake, including sliced Italian sausage and peppers (and even sliced pork tenderloin instead of chicken). I like that you can just grab veggies from the fridge that need to be used up as well.

This is such a delicious, quick, and easy dinner idea!
