  • Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the remaining olive oil in each of 2 large skillets. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, turning once, until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a platter, cover loosely with foil and keep warm.

  • Return 1 of the skillets to the heat, add the remaining tomatoes and cook over high heat just until heated through, about 1 minute; season with salt and pepper. Spoon the tomatoes over the chicken and serve the pesto on the side.
