I'm excited to introduce you to my favorite Registered Dietitian, Alysa Bajenaru. This recipe was adapted from Rachael Ray magazine and looks like a fabulous low-glycemic recipe. I can't wait to try it!! Thank you for guest posting Alysa!



Step 1

Preheat grill to medium heat.


  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

Step 2

Tear 2 sheets of aluminum foil at least 12 inches each. Pour 1 teaspoon olive oil in the center of each piece of foil, sprinkle salt & pepper into the olive oil then toss chicken breast to coat.


  • 6 tablespoons Pesto
  • 1 large Tomato, diced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 bunch Green Onion, trimmed and sliced in half lengthwise

Step 3

Spread 1 tablespoon pesto over each chicken breast. Layer 1/2 of the vegetables over each, then top with remaining 2 tablespoons pesto.

Step 4

Fold foil over the chicken and vegetables. Make sure to double fold the top and pinch the sides to form an airtight packet.

Step 5

Place the packets on the grill and cover for 30 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees. Alternately, you could bake them in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes if you don’t have access to a grill.
