1/4 Photos of Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Chicken Pasta
The Flying Chef's Note:
This is a super quick tasty recipe that is the perfect after work fast meal, it is not only perfect for when your in a hurry, but I always make extra as it reheats fine the next day, if the pasta is a little dry all you have to do is add a little cream. It can all be cooked in the same pan so you save on washing up and there are no steps, in fact you don't have to cook the chicken first, remove set to one side, then cook onions etc... It is all added one ingredient after the other, which when you want something on the table with out fuss makes this a great meal.
