Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 12 ounces angel hair pasta, cooked
  • Almond-Parsley Pesto:
  • 1 packed cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes.

  • In a blender, combine the pesto ingredients and process until smooth, adding more oil if necessary to create a sauce-like consistency.

  • Add the sauce to the chicken in the skillet and cook for 1 minute to heat through. Serve the chicken and sauce over the pasta.
