  1. 1

    Start the Vegetables

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Pulse carrots and peppers in a food processor, if desired. Add carrots, peppers, and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Cover and cook until beginning to brown, 1-2 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp. water and reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook until vegetables are soft, 10-12 minutes. While vegetables cook, cook chicken.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place another medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add ground chicken and 1 tsp. olive oil. Break up meat until no pink remains and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

  3. 3

    Add the Rice

    Add rice and pesto to hot pan, stirring occasionally until warmed through, 2-3 minutes. Add vegetable mixture to hot pan and stir to combine. Tear spinach into smaller pieces and stir into hot pan until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner.
