Chicken Pesto Pasta

My sister-in-law made this one evening and since it’s become my favorite mercy meal. (Mercy meals are arranged by our church for friends who’ve had babies or have been ailing or had surgery. They are the best idea ever.) Since the recipe makes such a large amount of pasta, it can easily be divided for two small families.

2 packets Creamy Pesto Sauce (and all ingredients required to make it)
1 rotisserie chicken
1lb pasta, any shape

Debone chicken while still warm and discard bones/cartilage. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces, set aside.

Make pesto sauce according to packet instructions. You will be doubling the sauce mix, but here’s one warning: do not double oil—the dish will be too oily if you do.

Cook pasta, drain. Dump in large bowl or back into your pot, then add chicken and sauce. Mix well and serve. Easy-peasy, as my 7 year old says!
