– Ziti – Basil leaves – Garlic – Water – Pine nuts – Extra-virgin olive oil – Boneless, skinless chicken breasts – Parmesan cheese
Boil a pot of water over high heat. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
Combine basil, garlic, water, pine nuts, and oil to make pesto.
Use a non stick cooking spray to coat a medium frying pan. Cook chicken for about 8 minutes per side.
Once chicken is cooked through (no pink!), chop chicken into strips or cubes, and combine with pesto and pasta.
I always put the lid on the pan for the last half of cooking. I think it helps the chicken cook through a little better!
