Substitutions/Notes: Substitute other types of citrus such as lime juice and grapefruit juice for the lemon and orange juice. Serve with your choice of sautéed vegetables or roasted vegetables or your side dishes of choice.


Baked Pesto Chicken Sheet Pan – Sheet pan meals are always a family favorite for weeknight dinners! This baked chicken pesto sheet pan meal is super versatile, too — swap out the veggies, use your favorite kind of pesto, or just make a big batch of pesto chicken only for some meal prepped protein!

Special Diet Notes: This recipe is keto friendly and paleo.

Prep Ahead: No need to prep ahead. This comes together quickly.
