Chef Tips: Making great Basil Pesto Chicken
This restaurant quality meal is very simple to make. The key is to make everything precisely the way described in this article. Please read carefully about the crucial steps I discussed above before diving into the recipe. Also using homemade basil pesto sauce with this recipe will go a very long way toward making your meal even more delicious. Try to time everything to come together at the end. Boil the pasta while the chicken is baking. Add the basil pesto sauce at the end while ingredients are hot, this will make it easier to spread the basil pesto with the ingredients. We love this recipe and we hope that you enjoy it too.
Be sure to use a stock pot that is large enough to boil the noodles, its best too use lots of water (5-6 quarts) in a stock pot that has a heavy bottom. I use a stainless steel stock pot for making noodles. I avoid using nonstick stock pots for recipes that don’t need them. It saves on their wear. Aside from that cooking food on high heat can damage nonstick pots.
It’s important to try and time the cooking of the chicken, pasta, onion, and spinach to be finished at the same time. You want all of these to be hot when mixing together. This will minimize the time needed to bake in the oven.
