Basil Pesto Drizzle

  • cup low fat greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp basil pesto
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with grease proof paper
  • Cut the chicken breast in half horizontally
  • Line up 3 plates with your flour, egg (cracked and whisked) and breadcrumbs. Dip the chicken breast in the flour, then egg and coat with breadcrumbs, set aside whilst you repeat the process for the other piece
  • Place wire rack into baking tray and cook bacon for 15 minutes or until crispy. Once done, leave to cool then cut with into small bits and pieces
  • Place coated chicken on grease proof paper. Cook chicken breast for approximately 30 mins (turn half way) or until lightly browned on both sides. Use tongs and a knife to cut into long strips
  • Fill a medium saucepan ⅔ full with water, add eggs.  Once water has boiled, cook for 6 minutes, Once done, tip hot water out, replace with cook water and sit until eggs are cool enough to work with, then peel under running water and cut in half

  • I use the basil pesto in the fridge section at Aldi (it is a dip). I love it and find it very versatile which gives me a lot of options
