Pesto Pasta with Chicken

Once again, I decided to make a recipe out of the latest Food Network magazine. Every issue has an insert that has 50 ways to cook a certain item. This month’s issue is 50 Chicken Dinners. The very first one that caught my eye was Pesto Pasta. This is a very easy and relatively quick recipe with little hands-on cooking. There are also just a few ingredients you will need!

  • 1 large chicken breast, sliced (I used 5 chicken tenderloins)
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine of your choice (I used Riesling because it was the only white wine I had on hand)
  • 1/3 cup pesto
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup parmesan
  • salt and pepper
  • 6oz. cooked pasta of your choice

1

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. There should be enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Brown the chicken breast.

2

Add the white wine and let simmer until it’s reduced, for about 5 minutes.

3

Add the pesto and cream. Stir and let it cook until it has thickened. I used pre-made pesto from the grocery store but feel free to make your own. Either way, it’s sure to be delicious!

4

Stir in the parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Toss with the cooked pasta and enjoy!

This is a great weeknight meal when you may not have a lot of time to prepare a meal. It takes about 25 minutes to make, give or take a few minutes, and is sure to satisfy your chicken and pasta craving!
