Pesto Chicken Pasta

This pesto chicken pasta is perfect a quick and easy dinner meal. I make a huge batch of the pesto and do meal prep on Sundays with these meals!

Tonight I am using my Basil Pesto recipe to make this Pesto Chicken Pasta. Hot or cold, this is the perfect weeknight recipe that will be on your table in 20 minutes or less! These are some of my favorite type of meals after a long day in the classroom. If you make the pesto during the weekend, you could even meal plan this recipe or similar ones with the same recipe.

Pesto has become one of my favorite ingredients to cook with. I especially love it as a sauce to pasta. It feels light as a sauce and makes you feel okay about eating a bowl of pasta. Add the quick cook chicken and you have a perfect bowl of dinner.
