    This chicken dish consists of a creamy sauce, with all the flavours of basil pesto. The dish also works well with thinly sliced pork. To thin out the sauce to the desired consistency, use a little extra milk or cream. Serve over freshly boiled rice or pasta, with extra Parmigiano Reggiano on top.
