/Baon/ Filipino noun 1. Provisions 2. Packed lunch or snack
I just love chicken (breast). Mainly because it’s lean, it’s versatile and it’s cheaper than pork and beef. That’s why I am making the I ❤ Chicken Recipe series and this is part une.
1/2 kg boneless and skinless Chicken breast (cut into chunks)
1 pack McCormick Pesto Sauce Mix
2 to 3 tbsp of chopped cashew nuts (cut into chunks)
2 cups water
1 tsp of iodized salt
1 tbsp Canola oil
1/2 cup all purpose cream
In a rondeau/brasier, heat two cups of water until it boils. Add the chicken and 1 tsp of salt. Turn the fire to medium and simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the pesto sauce based on the instruction at the back of the pack.
Set aside chicken and save 1/4 cup of the water (chicken stock) used for boiling.
Heat canola oil then saute the cashew nuts until light brown. Add the chicken, stock and pesto sauce and simmer for 3 minutes.
Add all purpose cream and simmer for another 2 minutes.
Serve. Perfect with whole wheat bread with a side of salad greens.
