I didn't start eating pesto until a few years ago and I'm always looking for recipes to add it to. You can't go wrong with chicken and pesto! Enjoy this easy recipe with some good Italian bread and a bottle of wine. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook garlic, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Stir in portobello mushrooms and roasted red peppers. Continue cooking until mushrooms have softened, about 4 minutes. Add spinach and cook until it starts to wilt, 1 to 3 minutes.

  • Mix pesto and cream together in a small bowl. Pour mixture over chicken and vegetables; stir to combine. Cook until sauce thickens, 5 more minutes.
