    Sun-dried tomato pesto, cream, mushrooms, onions, fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, Parmesan - coating spaghetti on a bed of spinach leaves, with Parmesan crusted chicken. Mmmmm. Chicken thighs can be quite difficult to eat since these ones had the bones still in, but I actually prefer having a chunk of meat with pasta, rather than it being chopped up inside (unless it's a pasta bake). I used chicken thighs because they still have the skin on and I love the crispy texture with the moist chicken. This is one of my perfect meals since I'm obsessed with pesto and pasta!
