Pesto & Creme Fraiche Chicken

Pesto & Creme Fraiche Chicken

I’ve made this dish three times now, and each time it hasn’t disappointed!


It’s high in protein, is cooked in just one pan, is easy to make and tastes delicious.. what more do you want from an evening meal?! As well as the perfect mid-week meal it’s also great for entertaining – you just pop the pan in the middle of the table and let everyone dig in!


You can serve this dish with either sweet potato fries (I get mine from Musclefood – use NIC5 for 5% off) or tagliatelle; nb the nutritional stats provided do not include these.


Do let me know if you make this dish, I would love to see it!


This recipe is adapted from the Soulmate Food recipe book which I’m really enjoying – it’s easy to read and the pictures are great (pictures of the recipe are essential for me when trying to make something!!).   




*I used reduced fat pesto from a jar however you can make your own by blending 60g basil leaves, 50g pine nuts and 30g grated parmesan cheese (before seasoning with salt and pepper).

      I don’t see why not.. although not sure how the veg would do! Let me know if you try it! I prefer to pop in the fridge and have leftovers the next day 🙂 x

    Just made this for tea – really lovely recipe. I used Quorn chicken pieces, put a little bit of veg stock in it to make it more saucy and added 2 handfuls of spinach. I served on top of basmati rice. It was delicious 🙂
