Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat a pan on medium heat with a 1 tbsp of olive oil. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. When the pan is hot, add the chicken and sear for 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside. (I like to cover the chicken with a splatter guard for this step).
  • Let the pan cool for 1-2 minutes off the burner and reduce the heat to low, then add Filippo Berio Sun Dried Tomato Pesto, garlic, red pepper flakes, and coconut cream. Stir the mixture constantly for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, spoon the pesto cream sauce over each chicken breast and cook for 5-10 minutes on low, covered. Before removing the pan, check the chicken for doneness by either cutting into the center or using a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature, it should be at least 165 F.
  • To serve, divide the chicken and the pesto cream sauce between two plates.
