Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, preferably non-stick. Add the chicken and fry without moving it until it takes on a bit of colour. Turn the chicken and cook on the other side. Continue cooking for 12-15 mins until the chicken is cooked through. Season all over with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Halve the tomatoes and throw them into the pan, stirring them around for a couple of minutes until they start to soften. Reduce the heat and stir in the pesto and crème fraîche until it makes a sauce. Scatter with a few basil leaves if you have them, then serve with rice and salad or mash and broccoli.

Made this last night for friends and we were blown away. Very quick and tasty! Has anyone used red pesto instead? We used green.

Was very impressed with the result and so easy! Only feeding two people, so had it two nights running - first night served with golden vegetable rice and second night had new potatoes and green beans, both were delicious. Might try using sundried tomato pesto next time and serving with linguine. Definitely recommend.

This is really simple and a favorite of mine, so easy to make and the combination of cherry tomatoes, creme fraiche and pesto makes a tasty sauce! Even my boyfriend who hates pesto, likes this dish!

I put the chicken in a casserole dish with the creme fraiche and pesto, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes and cooked it while I went for a run! It was perfect and light (not like a jared saucel!) Loved it as did everyone else!
