It’s amazing how busy I become in the summer months, not with work but just with life.  The warmer weather really does make me want to be out and about. Checking out the local orchards or hanging by the pool, I soak up more sun than I think is really necessary and the last place I want to be is in the kitchen hovering over a 400 degree oven. Don’t you agree?  But I still want to make healthy meals for my family that are loaded with flavor and worthy of a place on a restaurant menu. And again…without spending hours over the stovetop. This Olive Oil Poached Chicken and Radishes with Citrus Pesto is just the recipe.
