Not Your Mamas

Creamy Chicken Pesto

We’ve partnered with one of our favorite Instagram Foodies, @cookinwithmima, who created this satisfying noodle recipe that’s perfect for cold winter nights.

Ingredients:

3 cups No Yolks® Broad Noodles
1 lb chicken breast
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 medium fresh tomato, chopped
asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
2 tsps minced garlic
2 tsps ginger paste
2 tsps basil pesto sauce
4 oz low fat cream cheese
1/2 cup water
  salt
  ground black pepper
  crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsps olive oil

Directions:

In a skillet, start by cooking the chicken with some olive oil. Set aside. Add a more olive oil to the skillet and cook the onions until caramelized. Add the garlic, ginger paste, pesto sauce, tomatoes, asparagus, salt and pepper. Sauté those for about a minute or two. Then add the cream cheese and mix until the cheese melts completely and you have a thick mixture. Add the water and mix until smooth. Add the cooked No Yolks® Noodles and cooked chicken and mix everything together to cook for about 5 more minutes. Make sure your salt and pepper are enough. When that’s done, sprinkle some pepper flakes on top for garnishing. Serve and enjoy!
