This Spinach pesto chicken recipe is one of my personal favorites. I LOVE garlic, and when the flavors of garlic and fresh basil come together I’m in heaven. It’s no secret that one of my recommendations for staying on track with the hCG diet is to doll up your recipes with loads of spices. Enjoying your meals and really amping up the flavor can keep you satisfied.
