Easy Basil Pesto Chicken Pasta

This is a very simple recipe great for a weeknight dinner! :) It is made with a few simple ingredients in about 20 minutes. :) 

-2 boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts (thawed & cubed)
- 1 box tri-color Penne Pasta
-3 Tbsp. Basil Pesto (I used Kroger's Private Selection brand)
- 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
-Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Start water to boil in a large pot.
2. Meanwhile, in a skillet cook the chicken with 2 Tbsp. of the basil pesto until it is thoroughly cooked and it begins to brown.
3. Drain off the cooked chicken to remove excess grease.
4. Drain pasta and return to large pot.
5. Stir in chicken, cheese and remaining pesto until well combined.
6. If desired, add a bit more pesto to your desired taste.
7. Enjoy! :) You may also be interested in:
