Recipe: Nut Pesto with Chicken

I guess I've already said a hundred times in this blog my passion for pasta. What's my favorite kind of pasta you ask, NUT PESTO WITH CHICKEN. Delicious!
My version: Nut Pesto with Chicken
The scent of the basil is an attraction and addiction, like my personal brand of heroine, lol! It's just something that will for sure drool me over. My best Nut Pesto with Chicken meal so far was the one prepared by Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante in Glorietta, Makati. It's where me and mom would meet over for dinner for some hearty bonding moment and eventually go home late at night. Wow, it's been quite a few years since I happily drown myself with their pasta. I am missing it badly! And because Makati is a little too far from home, I cooked a much simpler version of the meal with the help of McCormick Pesto Pasta Sauce Mix. Here goes the Pesto recipe instruction:

1 pack McCormick Pesto Pasta Sauce Mix
1/4 cup water
6 tbsps oil
200g pasta (cook accdg to package directions)
chopped nuts
parmesan cheese (ordinary cheddar cheese can also be a replacement)

1. Combine McCormick Pesto Pasta Sauce Mix with water and oil in a sauce pan
2. Cook over medium heat. Do not boil
3. Turn heat off and toss in cooked pasta
4. Top with nuts and cheese :)

Cook the chicken separately. I personally use thin slices of chicken breast, spice it up with salt and pepper to taste, cover with flour and dip into beaten eggs then coat last with some japanese bread crumbs and then fry. It's all that easy that even some rich people I know couldn't believe at how easy it is to cook a pesto pasta at the comfort of your home. :)


  1. I like this one, too..Actually, almost all pasta recipes :) Glad to know we also share the same sentiments with pasta..seafood pasta is one of my favorites but no one at home likes it like I I don't make it..I like them at A Veneto Napoli!

  2. Naku I like that pesto pasta at Napoli too, the staff would meet there for our production meeting! And I would focus more on my food than our meeting, haha! Well, that was like 6 years ago. I would love to try your seafood recipe ate!
