Orange glazed chicken with Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Autumn Brown Rice.

First of all please allow me to apologize for the picture quality. My camera was dead when I went to take a picture, and we were far to hungry to wait for the battery to charge, so I used my iPhone. It’s not terrible, but it is not great either. Now… to the food!!! I originally wanted to try this dish with duck breast but it seems that, even at Whole Foods I can't find any duck breasts. I did find a rather large whole duck, but I didn't get it because it would obviously be too much! So I went for chicken breast. Since I was looking to have that fatty flavor that duck naturally gives out I chose to get the chicken breast (3 breasts) with skin on. I couldn’t find skin on without bones, so I had to debone the breasts at home. It’s really easy to do. You just guide your knife along the rib cage and you’re all set. First preheat your oven to 375 and get started on your rice. I chose brown rice, but any rice you prefer will be fine for this dish. I followed the directions on the bag,


So I wanted to make a quick V-Blog to show how easy to make pesto can be. I love all versions of pesto including cilantro pesto and arugula pesto. However tonight I want to show you the classic version! Basil! I hope you enjoy the video.. Please let me know what you think!! XOXOXO -P
