- salt and pepper

- 2 tbsp butter or coconut oil

- 5 tbsp red pesto or green pesto

- 1¼ cups (300ml) heavy whipping cream

For serving

INSTRUCTIONS


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.

Add butter or oil to a large skillet and fry the chicken pieces in batches on medium-high heat until golden brown.

Using store-bought low-carb red or green pesto, or making your own, mix pesto and heavy cream in a bowl.

Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes, until the dish turns bubbly and light brown around the edges.
