"This is a super easy way to feel like a big-shot in the kitchen. Chicken is a lean protein, so it satisfies without packing on the pounds. The walnuts provide healthy fat and tons of nutty taste – and combined with the Parmesan, voila!" - Keri Glassman

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Remove the Fresh Basil (0.5 ounce) leaves from the stems and discard stems. Place the leaves in the bowl of a food processor. Trim ends off Green Beans (12 ounce) and set aside.
Step 2
Zest 1/2 of the Lemon (1) directly into the food processor. Juice the lemon half into a small bowl and remove the seeds with a fork. Add the lemon juice to the food processor.
Step 3
Drain the Artichoke Hearts (4 ounce) in a strainer and then add to the food processor. Add the Garlic (2 clove), Walnut (0.5 ounce), Salt (1/2 teaspoon) and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 teaspoon).
Step 4
Pulse all the ingredients in the processor for 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl; process for 10 more seconds.
Step 5
Pat the Chicken Breast (2) dry with paper towels. Place a chicken breast on a cutting board with its tip toward you and its thickest side closest to your cutting hand.
Step 6
Place a hand on top of the breast. Hold your knife parallel to the cutting board and slice nearly all the way through, leaving the opposite end connected.
Step 7
Spread the top half of the breast open but keeping the breast intact. Place half of the pesto in the pocket and spread the mixture evenly, leaving a 1/4 inch edge. Fold the top half over to cover. Repeat with the remaining pesto and chicken breast.
Step 8
Combine the Parmesan Cheese (2 tablespoon) and Ground Black Pepper (1/2 teaspoon) on a plate and gently press the stuffed chicken breasts into the mixture, covering both sides.
Step 9
Heat Olive Oil (1 tablespoon) in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes on one side.
Step 10
Turn the breasts over and cook for 5 more minutes or until cooked through. Remove from heat and let rest until plating.
Step 11
Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the green beans, Water (1/2 cup) and cover. Cook for 2 minutes, season with Salt (1/4 teaspoon) and remove from heat and drain.
Step 12
Divide the green beans equally between two plates. Slice each chicken breast in half at a diagonal angle. Place the chicken on top of the green beans.
