Easy and very tasty. Great to do during the week when you have no much time to cook. I use spicy chorizo. If you don't have pesto, use a bunch of fresh coriander, it really makes a difference!

I made this once before and it was a little bland. Decided to make it again but this time I added three chicken breasts to make it more filling. I seasoned the chicken and coated with oil and baked on a high heat (220 fan) in the oven for about 25 minutes. This kept it tender and moist. I then sliced them up and added at the end. Added a couple of extra tins of chopped tomatoes as needed more liquid with the chicken. When frying the chorizo I also added some sundried tomatoes and a splash of Dubonnet (I have a lot of it and use it for cooking). Just used a jar of co-op finest pesto and it turned out great, really substantial with great flavours.

This is a great recipe- hardly any ingredients, really speedy and very tasty. We had it with crusty bread but it would also be lovely with a jacket potato. I recommend getting a good quality fresh pesto.
