How to make the Pesto Chicken
The easiest way to make the pesto chicken is to buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it with a fork. Alternately, you can roast plain chicken breasts in the oven, or even boil them in water or chicken broth. Rotisserie chicken is what I usually go for. It’s just so easy.
Warm Polenta Rounds with Pesto Chicken & Roasted Red Peppers
Festive and flavorful, an elegant and gluten-free appetizer!
- 1 tube of polenta
- 2 cups of cooked chicken breast shredded
- 3/4 cup pesto sauce
- 1 small jar roasted red peppers sliced into 15-18 ribbons
- Heat a pan over medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Slice the polenta into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Fry in batches, 4-5 minutes on each side, until browned and golden. Remove polenta rounds and place on a serving dish.
- Lower the heat to low and add the shredded chicken and pesto sauce. Coat the chicken in the pesto sauce and saute just enough to warm it. Top each polenta round with a dollop of shredded chicken and one ribbon of roasted red pepper. Garnish with toasted pine nuts.
