    For a Rainy Day...

    If cooking indoors, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray. Toss broccoli, 1 tsp. olive oil, and seasoned salt blend on prepared baking sheet to combine. Spread into a single layer. Break butter into small pieces and scatter over broccoli. Roast in hot oven until browned and fork-tender, 14-16 minutes. While broccoli roasts, place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan, and cook on one side until browned, 5-7 minutes. Flip chicken, top with cheese, and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Top chicken with basil pesto. Garnish broccoli with red pepper flakes (to taste) and chicken with pine nuts. Bon appétit!
