  1. Pat the chicken breasts dry, and then season them with salt and pepper to your taste and cover them with 2 tablespoons of pesto. 
  2. Heat up a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, add in the oil, and once it’s ready, put in the chicken breasts. 
  3. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side so they’re browned but not cooked all the way through.

  5. Put the chicken to the side for later.
  6. Put the cherry tomatoes into the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes.
