Rosemary Pesto Chicken, Polenta & Tomato Stew, Fresh Fruits/Veggies

 >Rosemary, Mint & Basil Pesto Oven-baked Chicken topped with Caramelized Onions
>Marinara sauce with peas
>Cucumber, Baby Carrots & Grapes 'that tastes like grape juice'

Make this veggie/vegan using Tempeh in place of chicken

This meal is my Italia-inspired meal. I really like polenta as a quick, filling and versatile grain option. Our backyard is currently abundant with herbs, and since I'm trying to put a dent in the Rosemary I decided I'd use it in a pesto. Our trip to Oregon still has us stacked with wonderful organic, and great tasting veggies, thanks to friends who own farms and have amazing gardens (the cucumbers & grapes). Really the grapes taste like grape juice. lol.

Because the combination of polenta, tomato & chicken seemed so heavy, I just had a taste for veggies that were crisp, fresh and ready to eat, so I thought it would be a good compliment. A glass of wine and you're good to go!
