Optionally, you can add grated parmesan together with the mozzarella. You can also add freshly ground black pepper to the chicken before cooking it. It’s important not to overcook the chicken, so you should not wait for it to be completely cooked before adding the mozzarella.

When buying your pesto, check the label for the ingredients and for the carbs it contains – pesto is typically low-carb but the actual number can vary.
