Are you looking for a super quick weeknight meal that will make your taste buds very happy? This is the recipe for you! It is super fast, it only has 5 ingredients and it is really really tasty. Oh man is it tasty!
Here is what you need,
1 tsp olive oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2/3 cup chicken broth, low sodium
1/2 cup Philadelphia cream cheese spread
4 tbsp basil pesto, you could make your own pest if you were feeling ambitious. I was lazy and used some store bought stuff, it tasted great.
Heat oil in a large non stick skillet on medium heat add the chicken and cook 6-8 minutes on each side until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
Add the broth to the skillet and cook until warmed, 3-5 minutes. Add the cream cheese spread and the pesto. Cook and stir until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. It will thicken a bit.
Add the chicken back to the pan to coat.
Yep that's it, just that easy!
I served mine with roasted potatoes. Which tasted great dipped in the sauce by the way!!
As I was eating this dinner I couldn't stop thinking about how good this sauce would be on gnocchi. I can't wait to try it.
Hope you like it as much as we did.
