Cook the chicken any way you like. We sauteed the breasts in a frying pan, then lowered the heat, covered and cooked about 20 minutes until no longer pink inside. You could also bake them in the oven.
Sauce: In a large skillet bring broth and seasonings to a boil. Let cook until about 1/2 volume. Stir in cream, and again cook down until about 1/2. Whisk in prepared pesto and Parmesan. Serve over chicken.
