Pesto chicken with courgetti

Ingredients How to make


How to make

  • Chop the onion and pepper. Dice the chicken or tofu.
  • Add 6-10 tablespoons of water to a pan with a lid on a medium heat.
  • Add the onions and peppers to the pan and stir. Place the lid on the pan and allow to cook for a few minutes.
  • Add the chicken pieces and a bit more water if needed. Stir the ingredients and place the lid on the pan again. Allow this to cook until the chicken is done; around 10-15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, spiralise the courgette.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the pesto.
  • Serve by plating the courgetti with chicken in pesto on top.
