How to Make Chicken Pesto Pasta Crunch


  1. Boil chicken breast in pot until fully cooked. Then in a large mixing bowl with forks or your fingers shred or pullapart the chicken add 2-3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. To prevent chicken from being to dry.
    NOTE: 2 chicken breast for every 4 servings

    NOTE: I usually do about 2 cups for 4 servings. If you perfer more or less noodles go with it.

    Note: 1 package for every 4 servings unless you want it really creamy, then add more packets.
  4. Add pesto sauce to chicken pasta mixture and toss. Add cheese stir it in.
    Pour croutons in a bowl and crush with any item that has a rounded bottom. Sprinkle on top of mixture,
  5. Set in preheated oven for 350 degrees for 10-20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Every oven varies so keep watch as everything is already cooked.
