Take your chicken breast, remove the skin and trim off any fat. Then dice it into 1 inch cubes. Take the fresh pesto and in a small bowl mix in the cream.

Prepare your pasta and get the water in your saucepan to heat for cooking the pasta, but do not put the pasta on yet.

While waiting for your pasta pot to get up to a boil, gently fry the chicken in a little olive oil until the meat just starts to brown. Next add in the pesto and cream and stir the lot together. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting possible and get you pasta on to cook.

As soon as the pasta is ready, drain it and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil (or a truffle oil, for extra flavour) and stir the chicken and creamy pesto into the pasta.

Serve with some freshly grated Parmesan for a very quick and tasty meal.
