Summery Chicken

This is possibly one of the easiest dinners ever but one of the tastiest. I love the combination of pesto, creme fraiche and chicken, it feel deliciously creamy yet you know that it's actually light. The whole recipe is only 5 points! I served it with celeriac mash, watercress and asparagus drizzled with balsamic vinegar. The best of summer flavours.

Summery Chicken (from WeightWatchers Cooking for One)
(Serves 1)
(5 WW ProPoints per serving)

cooking spray
150g skinless boneless chicken breast
100g cherry tomatoes, halved
25g half fat creme fraiche
10g low fat pesto
a lemon wedge
salt and pepper
a few basil leaves to serve

Spray a non stick frying pan with the cooking spray. Season the chicken breast and add to the pan. Cook over a medium heat for about 20-25 mins, turning often, until the chicken is cooked through and golden.

Add the cherry tomatoes to the pan and cook for a further 2-3 mins. Add the creme fraiche and pesto, season, stir to combine, and squeeze over the lemon. Serve immediately garnished with the basil leaves.
