One Pan Chicken & Broccoli in Pesto

Chicken & Broccoli in Pesto

Chicken & Broccoli in Pesto

I love recipes that are simple, fast - and involve a minimum of washing up! So one pan recipes are a favourite in my house.

This is one of those great weeknight recipes that you can throw together quickly but which packs a real flavour punch. In fact, I snapped these pics as I was making this super-fast dinner one evening.

You can use home made pesto (check out my recipe here!), but in the interests of convenience feel free to use store bought!


2 chicken breasts, cut into small even pieces
1 red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 head broccoli, cut into florets (the smaller the better as they will cook faster!)
1 tablespoon olive oil
200g pesto - you can use store bought pesto or check out my recipe here if you want to make it yourself!


Place all ingredients except pesto into a large frying pan.
Saute until the chicken is cooked through. I often cover the pan to steam the broccoli a little.
When the chicken is cooked through and the broccoli is "al dente", remove pan from heat and stir through pesto.

Serve and enjoy!
