These pesto chicken stir fry noodles are served in a bowl with baby bok choy. This stir fry recipe is delicious and easy to make in ONE PAN. The Asian Thai basil pesto brings a kick of flavor and a dose of healthy antioxidants! A chicken dinner that’s quick, delicious, and nutritious. Serve it warm in a stir fry or even as a cold pasta salad.
Ahhh yea! ASIAN PESTO CHICKEN STIR FRY NOODLES… made into a stir fry bowl! It’s a better for you one pan pesto chicken dish. And quite pleasing to the palate, that I promise.
But ya, I know what you’re thinking, another pesto recipe? Let’s just call it a saucy concoction that’s immensely flavorful and packed with superfoods, mmm k? I’ll get all nerdy with the health benefits in a minute, but first, a little about life lately. Everything’s still up in the air with the husband’s job search, but that’s OKAY, because there’s nothing worse than settling, and neither of us want that, am I right?
So we’ve been celebrating little moments where we can, like a culinary conference in Napa that happened to coincide with the Kiwi’s birthday. So not only did I get to work with a MASTER CHEF and learn some new ways to add more nutrients to salads and such, I brought the kiwi along to relish in all things Napa. We definitely enjoyed our long weekend getaway, even though we may have had a few too many glasses of sparkling wine, LOL! But that’s what one does in Napa, ya? Another conference coming up, so it’s a busy month!
Okay then, back to the recipe… this Asian pesto is made with Thai basil, so it’s just another way to try something new, a fun way to venture beyond the Italian variety. And it all comes together in a dairy free, superfood packed pesto.
SO delicious, SO versatile, you can’t stop me from loving this stuff! It can be served hot, cold, on rice noodles, zoodles, on gluten free bread sandwich style, to flavor soups, stew, in stir fries, I can keep going if you want, no?
And just to get all nutrition nerdy on you, the basil is anti-inflammatory, boosts immunity, and is loaded with antioxidants, a triple whammy! And what better way to showcase an Asian pesto than on a chicken noodle bowl… errr I mean stir fry bowl? You get the picture.
What’s in this pesto chicken stir fry noodles dinner?
This pesto chicken stir fry calls for gluten free rice noodles, protein packed chicken breast, and bok choy, all smothered in this AMAZING, NUTRITIOUS, TASTY pesto! And ya, the bok choy increases the superfood powers of this bowl, but you already know I’m gonna sneak some extra nutrition into my recipes! It’s just what I do, ha!
Side note: Don’t have baby bok Choy? Feel free to use any type of asian cabbage. It’s all good!
And on to maybe my last pesto recipe for a while? Never say never, the wheels are already turning, LOL! You can never have too many on hand, or in your hands. Literally.
