Chicken Pesto Linguini

Very similar to the previous pesto dish I made before. This time I pureed items to make the pesto sauce. I still need pine nuts, would've made the dish better! Serves 2-3.

1 package of Boutoni whole wheat linguini
1 chicken breast
2 cloves of garlic (chopped)

Pesto sauce
2 cups of fresh basil leaves
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Puree in a blender or food processor
If you prefer a less garlicky sauce, use less garlic

Boil water and add salt
Add in the linguini, boil for ~3 minutes
Drain and set aside

Cut up chicken into small pieces, add salt & pepper.
Preheat the pan, add oil after it's warmed up. Add garlic when oil is warmed up. Cook until brown and remove. Add in the chicken.
Flip chicken over when one side is brown.
Before the chicken is done, add in the pasta, garlic, and pesto sauce. If you have pine nuts, add them in too :)
