A tasteful chicken with pesto and mozzarella cheese garnished with seasonal salad. It can be prepared quickly and easily. Imagine all that cheese melting…awesome :-).
Some friends were coming over and I decided to prepare a dinner. It was a short notice so all I could find was the chicken in the freezer, some pesto and a lot of mozzarella. Believe me, my friends were thrilled with the meal I have prepared. I had to give them the recipe and some leftovers to take home. That was a success for the cook… for me :-). This dinner was joyful for me…I can call it Joy Chicken :-).
