This is a very simple, rustic recipe for chicken with creamy pesto and broad beans. The flavours of basil, garlic and parmesan in the pesto are muted by the half-fat crème fraîche and the broad beans give a freshness to the dish.

Ingredients

  • 2 packs mini chicken breast fillets
  • 3 tablespoons green pesto
  • 200g tub half-fat crème fraîche
  • 200g fresh or frozen (and thawed) broad beans
  • Handful finely chopped parsley (optional)

Method

  1. Take chicken breasts and cut each fillet in half diagonally. Pan-fry the chicken with a splash of olive oil over a high heat for 6-8 minutes until tender.
  2. Stir in pesto and cook for 1 minute. Add crème fraîche and bring to a simmer. Mix in broad beans and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the beans are tender and the sauce has thickened. Divide between plates, sprinkle with finely chopped parsley, if you like, and serve with boiled new potatoes.
