Chicken Penne Pesto Pasta | COHEN DIET: Pesto Chicken and Zucchini Pasta



While I had chicken in a pesto sauce, Hubby had exactly the same but transformed into a pasta! This was so quick, the only thing I had to wait for (which took the longest!) was the pasta. I had it with zucchini 'pasta' and no milk to create a Cohen recipe.

  • Chicken breast, cut into strips
  • spring onion
  • ¼ tsp fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp fresh garlic
  • Green beans, diced
  • penne pasta
  • 1 tsp pesto
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp milk
  1. Heat a pot of water and cook penne according to packet instructions.
  2. Heat a frying pan. Fry the chicken until almost cooked. Add the spring onions, ginger and garlic.
  3. Add the green beans and stir. 
  4. When the green beans are almost cooked, mix pesto, mayonnaise and milk to form a thick sauce. 
  5. Add sauce to chicken, turn down the heat and simmer until the chicken and vegetables are cooked. If it cooks dry, add more milk.
  6. Drain the pasta and add to the chicken. Stir well.
  7. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese!
