So many of you have been asking for one-pot dishes, aren’t they awesome? I was given this recipe by a friend of a friend, at a party. When people find out that I am a blogger, they often talk about their favorite dishes. I mentally take notes and recreate those dishes at home.

This dish indeed is loaded with flavors. With such a huge variety of ingredients, it makes the dish very fancy. But for those of you who don’t carry pesto or prosciutto in your fridge, you can always skip those ingredients, just add a bit more seasoning to the dish.

When serving it, scoop all the way from the bottom, to have chicken sit on top. If you slice the chicken, it will totally look like a quality restaurant dish.
