Recipe: Pesto Chicken and Red Potatoes

This is a very flavorful dish and really warm and comforting on a cold night. But for being comfort food, it's also a pretty healthy meal! We use just a small amount of mayo and sour cream to thicken up the pesto. But overall, not bad!

Pesto Chicken and Red Potatoes

1/2 cup prepared pesto
1 tsp mayo
2 tsp sour cream
4 chicken breasts (boneless or bone-in shouldn't matter)
6-8 medium size red potatoes
Parmesan cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange chicken and potatoes in a single layer in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine pesto, sour cream and mayo in a small cup. Brush over chicken and potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for about 15-20 minutes (depending on how thick your chicken is) or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender.

    This sounds so delicious! I wonder how plain yogurt would do in place of the mayo and sour cream. I will have to try!

    That looks awesome! Pesto on anything is my favorite. 

  3. mmmn. I think this looks really yum. I may have to make it soon! :) Ahh. Pesto!

  4. Oh I bet that would be great! Much healthier version! I imagine you could leave it out as well. I just liked the creaminess it gave the pesto.
