    Creamy Pesto chicken - 6 discovery points per serving(serves 4)


    Ingredients
    Method
    • Heat the oil in a deep, non stick frying pan. Add the chicken and fry without moving it until it takes on a bit of colour. Turn the chicken and cook on the other side. Continue cooking for 12-15 mins until the chicken is cooked through. Season all over with a little salt and pepper.
    • Halve the tomatoes and throw them into the pan, stirring them around for a couple of minutes until they start to soften. Reduce the heat and stir in the pesto and crème fraîche until it makes a sauce. Scatter with a few basil leaves, then serve. I had it with rice and broccoli.

    I was on WW PPs but have now switched to calorie counting.
    Sounds yummy. I admit that I am a pesto virgin. Can you use any kind of pesto? Do different kinds have different points?

    Like green sludge :p It's oil and basil with nuts blended. Or you can get a red one that I think is tomato. The pesto I have is this one: Sacla Italia Pesto Verde (225g) in ASDA | mySupermarket

    but it is high in propoints (29 for the whole jar! the lowest daily amount), guessing it would be high in points too :cry:

    This is lovely if you replace the creme fraiche with Philadelphia light and a splash of skimmed milk
