You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pans
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Cook the Chicken
Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.
Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
While chicken cooks, cook vegetables.
Cook the Vegetables
Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ¼" strips.
Place another medium non-stick pan over medium heat with 2 tsp. olive oil. Add green beans, red bell pepper, garlic, garlic salt, and pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until garlic is fragrant, 45-60 seconds.
Add 2 Tbsp. water. Cover, and stir occasionally until green beans are vibrant and tender, 5-7 minutes.
If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Make the Red Pepper Cream
Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp. water, cream cheese, pesto, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan.
Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often until smooth and creamy, 1-2 minutes.
If too thick, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Remove from burner.
