Cooking Without a Recipe: Tomato Basil Pesto Chicken

This dish is best served with pasta tossed in parmesan cheese and truffle oil (or rice if you’re Asian). The tomato paste is a good tangy balance to the basil pesto, and the cream adds the luxurious texture. Also, baking the chicken is better than frying it, as you lose the extra fat in the process. It’s still moist, but not as fatty.
