Today is the first time I have had or cooked gnocchi, it was an enjoyable experience. I love things quick and easy (or slow and easy) and gnocchi definitely fits into the fast category.
On Tuesday nights I try to use up any leftovers I have from the weekend, this week I had a tub of Broccoli pesto to finish off from Sunday nights burgers. On the way home I tried to pull together the different strands to make a proper meal. Chicken is always good – especially with pasta, but the one thing that was missing was the kick.
Broccoli Pesto is subtle and creamy, I don’t want to overpower the pesto but also didn’t want the pesto to be the only flavour in the dish. This is where the light chilli coating on the chicken comes in, it gives enough of a bite without drowning out the pesto.
