I definitely have less time to cook these days but I still love creating new meals and enjoying really tasty food.
Today I had a hunt about in the fridge and made a recipe I must have made 10 times before but today it tasted especially good and I wanted to share it with you before I forgot!
Creamy Pesto Chicken
Totally indulgent but light and the addition of the tomatoes/peppers and courgettes makes you feel pretty food about eating it.
You will need:
3 or 4 chicken thighs
150ml double cream
2 sweet red peppers diced (or half a large red pepper)
Approx.10 cherry tomatoes
2 inch chunk of courgette diced
Crushed black peppercorns
Brown your thighs:
* I was making double for a different recipe.
Once browned add your courgette, tomatoes and peppers:
Cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes and then add your pesto and cream. Cook for a further 5-10 minutes ensuring your chicken is thoroughly cooked and serve immediately.
I served with “round chips” and rocket. It was delicious. It served two adults and we were more than satisfied.
Recipe for chips to follow tomorrow.
It’s a bit of an indulgent recipes with the double cream so you could use single cream or even yoghurt to lighten it up but it’s seriously good.

Chicken thighs are the ultimate underrated foodstuff I think. So many people buy big tasteless chicken breasts and miss out on the cheaper, juicy thigh. So good for any type of spicy food. Big up the thigh!!!
Glad you agree 🙂 thanks for commenting x
