    Chicken Pesto with Tomatoes

    My son is so-o-o picky about food, but LOVED this dish. I seasoned the chicken with Lawrys seasoned salt and some ground pepper before browning. I have an electric stove so next time I will coat the pan with some canola oil rather than spray. I used pesto with basil and lemon from the refrigerator section. Absolutely delicious!!!!!!!!!!! Will definitely make many times. Thanks so much.

    Chicken Pesto with Tomatoes

    It's super easy, I seasoned the chicken before cooking it, and I used smaller chicken tender sized pieces. Yummy, it makes great leftovers!

    Great Recipe!

    This is delicious and super easy. It looks elegant though, so it would be nice for a special occasion dinner. I served mine over linguini instead of penne.
