Serves 4
Metropolitan Market rotisserie chicken is an easy weeknight meal solution that helps you get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.


  • 1 pound Metropolitan Market fusilli or penne pasta
  • 2 Tbsp salt plus more to taste
  • 8 oz green beans, trimmed and sliced into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 3/4 cups basil pesto*
  • 2 cups shredded Metropolitan Market rotisserie chicken
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil; add 2 Tbsp salt and pasta. Stir well and boil pasta for 5 minutes. Add green beans to the pot and cook until pasta is al dente, about 5 minutes more. Drain pasta and return to the pot, reserving 1 cup of pasta cooking water.
  2. Add the pesto, chicken, and tomatoes to the pasta and stir gently to combine. Thin sauce with a little pasta water, if desired. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  3. *Purchase pesto from the Metropolitan Market olive bar or make by blending together 2 cups basil, 1 garlic clove, 1/2 cup Metropolitan Market extra virgin olive oil, 1/3 cup pine nuts, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, and 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice in a food processor; season to taste with salt.
