Hello, food lovers! Today, I’m going to share with you a classic Italian recipe that’s a favorite in my household – Pesto Pasta with Chicken. This dish is a perfect blend of flavors that will transport you straight to the heart of Italy. So, let’s get started!

Items Needed:

1. A good cookware set

2. The always popular wooden spoon

3. Cheese Grater


  • Pasta: 1.1 pounds (about 17.6 ounces) of your choice. I prefer using spaghetti or penne.
  • Chicken: 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
  • Pesto Sauce: 1 jar (about 7 ounces). You can also make it at home.
  • Garlic: 2 cloves, finely chopped.
  • Olive Oil: 2 tablespoons.
  • Parmesan Cheese: Grated, for garnish.
  • Salt and Pepper: To taste.


  1. Cook the Pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.

  2. Prepare the Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until it’s no longer pink in the middle. Remove from the pan and let it cool before cutting it into slices.

  3. Make the Pesto Pasta: In the same pan, add another tablespoon of olive oil and the chopped garlic. Sauté until the garlic is fragrant. Add the cooked pasta and pesto sauce to the pan. Toss until the pasta is well coated with the sauce.

  4. Combine: Add the sliced chicken to the pan and toss again. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until everything is heated through.

  5. Serve: Divide the pasta among plates. Garnish with a generous sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese.

And there you have it – a delicious Pesto Pasta with Chicken that’s easy to make and packed with flavor. Enjoy this dish with a side of garlic bread and a glass of white wine for a complete meal. Buon appetito!

Note: Always ensure your chicken is cooked thoroughly to avoid any foodborne illnesses.
