Creamy Pesto Chicken


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 200g small vine or cherry tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp pesto
  • 1 tub crème fraîche
  • Fresh basil
  • Grated parmesan


Heat a large pan on medium high heat. Add the olive oil then arrange the chicken in the pan. Leave to cook without moving until golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Turn each piece over, season with salt and pepper, then cover with lid and lower heat, leave to cook until chicken is cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, cut tomatoes in half and mix the pesto into the tub of crème fraîche.

Once chicken is cooked, remove the lid and add the tomatoes. Cook until tomatoes start to soften slightly. Then add the crème fraîche mixture and cook for further 5 minutes, turning the chicken pieces in the sauce to coat each one.

Once cooked, garnish with fresh basil leaves, and sprinkle with parmesan. Serve immediately.
