    • First, you can either buy premade pesto or follow below for a homemade pesto. 
      • Add 1 package of fresh basil, 1 tbsp olive oil, a pinch of salt, pepper, 1 tbsp sesame seeds (or pine nuts) and 1 tbsp of parmesan to a blender or mortar and pestle until well mixed. Set aside until later. 
    • Add avocado or olive oil to a pan and set to medium heat. Season the chicken breast with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and paprika on both sides and rub into the chicken. Cook the chicken breast for 4-6 minutes on each side and set aside to rest.
