Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C).

  5. Cool the broccoli cups. Once cooled, remove from the muffin tin.
  6. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet medium heat. Add the chicken and season with salt and pepper, and cook until golden on all sides.
  7. Add the pesto and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.
  8. Fill the broccoli Parmesan cups with the pesto chicken. Top with slices of tomatoes and basil.
