  • 1 jar of pesto
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, as needed
  • 2 cups potatoes, cut into large chunks (or small new potatoes)
  • 1 cup fresh green beans
  • 1 cup cherry tomotoes
  • 1/2 large green olives with pimentos, pitted

  2. Cut up chicken into small chunks and brown in pan until outside is golden. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cut up potatoes and boil for 5 min on stove top, drain and set aside.
  4. Wash, trim and cut green beans in half.
  5. Place chicken, potatoes and green beans in baking dish pour jar of pesto all over the top and stir together.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 15-20 min until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are soft.
  7. Toss in tomatoes and olives and cook for a further 5-10 min. If it looks like it is getting dry, drizzle extra olive over the dish and toss again.
  8. Serve on it’s own or with a salad.


  • If you don’t want to use green beans you can add any veggies, if they cook fast then add them at the end of the cook time rather that when you are cooking the chicken and potatoes!
