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.
