Delicious homemade basil is the only way to go! After trying this recipe I don't think I'll go back to store bought anymore. The roasted mushroom, broccoli and chickpeas were delicious thanks to the olive oil and seasoning mixture. Perfect portions and great for lunch or dinner meal prep.

Love this! The homemade basil pesto recipe was fantastic. The toasted pine nuts gave it a great nutty flavor. I think this is my go to recipe from now on.

This was a really good meal prep for dinner. I added extra chicken thighs, but other than that didn't change the recipe at all. The spices blended perfectly with the aromatic mushrooms. Solid dish all around.

You had me at sheet pan! The only thing I was missing from this recipe was garlic. I used garlic powder, but also added fresh minced garlic for extra flavor in the broccoli and chicken. I also could have used more pesto. If you like a lot, I recommend making a double batch.

I did quinoa instead of brown rice for this pesto grain bowl, and it was really good. Perfect for lunch! Also, I used chicken thighs instead of breasts. The meat was really tender and juicy!
