Asiago Crusted Chicken with Pesto Angel Hair Pasta
1 lb. chicken breasts, boneless skinless
1/4 c. Asiago cheese
1 egg
1/2 c. bread cumbs
Oregano, garlic salt, pepper to taste
2 portions angel hair pasta
store-bought pesto
dash of cream
pat of butter

Cook time approx 25 minutes

  • Pre-heat oven to 375F
  • Foil a baking pan or sheet, spray foil with cooking spray
  • Combine cheese, bread crumbs, oregano, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl
  • Crack egg into separate bowl and whisk lightly
  • Pat chicken dry, dip in egg then in cheese/bread crumbs mixture coating all sides
  • Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and put in oven, set timer for 10 minutes
  • When timer goes off, start a pot of water boiling; Re-set timer for 15 minutes
  • When water comes to boil, drop in pasta and cook 7-9 minutes
  • Drain pasta and return to hot pot. Immediately drop in pat of butter and stir to coat pasta. Add dash of cream (I used about a Tablespoon) and stir. Finally, add 2 Tbsp of pesto or as much as desired to coat your pasta
  • Your timer for the chicken should be going off about now, so pull it outta there
  • Place a nest of pesto pasta in the center of the plate, lay chicken breast on top. Grate a little more asiago on top, maybe a sprig of parsley if you're feeling festive
