This recipe is one I was given by my mum and it is super fast and easy (a prerequisite for me!). I also think it is fairly healthy as dinners go, not to mention super yummy! I served Joes with some rice but as I am currently avoiding most white foods (other than white chocolate and vanilla ice-cream obviously...doh!) I had mine with salad and it was pretty nice.

INGREDIENTS 
(Serves 4 people)
:: 1 tbsp of olive oil
:: 4 boneless chicken/skinless chicken breasts
:: 200g pack of cherry tomatoes
:: 3 tbsp of pesto
:: 3 tbsp of low fat creme fraiche
:: fresh basil

HOW TO

1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add the chicken and cook through thoroughly. Add a little salt and pepper at this point if you wish.

2. Halve the tomatoes and throw them into the pan with the cooked chicken. Stir them for a few minutes until they have softened. 

3. Reduce the heat and stir in the pesto and creme fraiche until it makes a sauce. Allow to heat through and add some basil leaves. Serve with rice, salad or vegetables!
