Ingredients You Need

Slice the chicken into halves, so you end up with thinner cutlets. Then season both sides with salt and pepper.


Now add the olive oil into a skillet and bring the heat to medium high.


Cook the chicken on both sides, then transfer to a plate and cover with foil.


In the same pan, toss in the cherry tomatoes and stir them gently for about 1 minute just until they look blistered. Then add in the pesto.


Now add the chicken back in. Stir until everything is combined. Add more pesto on top of the chicken if you prefer more.


Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
