Easy Chicken Pesto Pasta for Dinner

Chicken Pesto Pasta

Servings 4


  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 box cooked pasta
  • 3 cups cooked chicken shredded or cubed


  1. Cook and prep your chicken and pasta to your liking and combine in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. For the sauce, bring your heavy cream to a boil, stirring constantly, it will come to a boil fast. Let this boil on medium heat for 4-5 minutes until it thickens up. Add your pesto and stir. Add your parmesan and stir until most of the cheese is melted in the sauce. Add your salt and pepper, not too much as the pesto and cheese have a lot of flavor by themselves.

  3. Pour your pesto cream sauce over the chicken and pasta, and stir to combine.
