Basil Pesto Chicken

It's very rare that I cook just a chicken breast.

I do cook ALOT of chicken but normally need to be more creative to sneak past my husband the fact that we are eating chicken for the THIRD time in a week!  HA!

Last night I was not being creative and tossed two chicken breasts in my air fryer. Quick and easy, topped with basil pesto and there were no complaints from the peanut gallery -:)

I like to keep a jar of basil pesto in the fridge. It comes in handy when I'm looking for something different to add to a recipe. 


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp basil pesto (store brand or whatever you prefer)


  1. Preheat air fryer on 390 for 3 minutes.
  2. Trim any fat off the chicken.
  3. Spray basket and place chicken in and cook for about 8 minutes.
  4. Flip the chicken and cook for about another 8 minutes.
  5. Top each with 1 tbsp of basil pesto and cook for 1 minute.

You could top these with a little mozzarella cheese if you'd like but I already had cheese on the Eggplant Parm. Speaking of the Eggplant Parm, check out this LINK.

This recipe makes 2 servings at 3 pts each on Weight Watchers Freestyle Program.
