Chicken Pesto with Green Beans and Tomatoes

I saw a recipe like this on one of those videos on facebook.  It looked yummy.  But I didn't save it and couldn't remember who posted it, so I just made this up as I went.  It turned out delicious! 

Chicken Pesto with Green Beans and Tomatoes
1 lb. chicken tenders
Salt and pepper
1/2-1 cup basil pesto
1 large package frozen green beans
1 lb. package grape tomatoes, cut in half
Cooked pasta

Salt and pepper the tenders (or I like to use Montreal steak seasoning)  Mix with your hands.  Put some olive oil in a large skillet and add the seasoned tenders.  Fry on each side for 3-4 minutes until browned and juicy.  Add the green beans and about 1/2 cup of water.  Cover and cook until green beans are done.  Take off the cover and let steam off until almost dry.  Add the tomatoes and about 1/2 cup of pesto.  Turn off heat and mix together.  Serve over cooked pasta (we like penne) that has some pesto (amount to taste) in it.  So easy, so quick, and so delicious!
