One Pan, 30 Minute

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Chicken


Chicken breast, sun dried tomato pesto, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, olive oil, butter, and seasonings.

Step 1

Use a meat mallet to pound and tenderize your chicken breasts. Pound the chicken breast out until all pieces are about ½ inch thick. Mix the dried seasonings together in a small bowl. Season both sides of the chicken breast with the seasoning blend.

Step 2

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over low to medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the chicken. Place the chicken in a single layer, without overlapping the pieces.

Step 3

Cook each side for about 8-10 minutes, cooking the chicken for a total of 16-20 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the cooked chicken from the pan. Add the butter and minced garlic. Cook the garlic for about 30 seconds. Just until the garlic is fragrant.

Step 5

Pour in the heavy cream and the sun dried tomato pesto. Use a wooden spoon to stir the tomato pesto sauce together. Gently scrape the bottom of the pan to pull up any brown bits. Bring the cream sauce to a gentle simmer.

Step 6

Add in the grated parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted. Turn off your burner. Add the cooked chicken back into the skillet.

Step 7

Spoon some cream sauce over top of the chicken. Serve the Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Chicken straight from the skillet, or cut it up into thin slices. Enjoy!
