Creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta

This yummy Creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta is the ultimate easy chicken pasta dish. I always have a jar of pesto in my cupboard and it takes no time at all to add some pre-cooked chicken, green leaves and a good sprinkling of cheese.

Pesto is one of my favorite sauces – thank you Italy! And I love the combination with succulent chicken and crisp spinach leaves, bulked out with al dente pasta. Ready in just 20 minutes, you can have this recipe up your sleeve for any night of the week!
