 Let’s Begin:

Chicken Pesto with green beans is a deliciously healthy meal. It is a simple and easy to follow two-step process:

  1. Heat the oil then add Chicken Thighs in a large pan. Season the Chicken with Salt and Pepper. When the Chicken looks completely cooked through, remove it from the pan and let it cool approximately 2 minutes. Slice the Chicken Thighs into strips and set aside to use later.
  2. Add the Green beans to the pan and cook till they are crispy tender. Return the Chicken strips to the pan and add the tomatoes and pesto sauce to the mix. Stir fry till the sauce is fully incorporated with the other ingredients. To give it a creamy texture you can add milk / cream as per your preference [this is optional].
