Submitted by Benito Espinoza, Manufacturing

Ingredients You'll Need

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
16 oz farfalle pasta
1 cup basil pesto (homemade or storebought)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup fresh basil, cut into thin strips
Parmesan cheese (optional)


Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Grill the chicken over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes per side, or until completely cooked. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and slice into strips.

Meanwhile, boil the pasta until al dente according to the package instructions.

Rinse and drain pasta and set aside.

Using a large bowl, mix together the pesto, pasta, and chicken. Stir until well combined and place in the refrigerator until chilled.

Stir in the cherry tomatoes and fresh basil immediately before serving.

Finish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. (optional)
