Prettify the Pesto: Grilled Chicken Pesto

Saturday, July 19, 2008

After sharing my pesto recipe, here's another recipe-sharing to jazz up the usual pesto sauce.

Grilled Chicken Pesto

For the chicken breasts:
  • 1/2 kilo chicken breast fillet
  • drizzles of olive oil
  • 6 cloves crushed garlic
  • juices of 4 dayaps
  • Dried rosemary, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper
Other ingredients:
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of pesto sauce (or more or less)
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • Linguine/spaghetti (cooked)

Marinade chicken breasts in olive oil, dayap juice, rosemary, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper for an hour or more.

Pan-grill or charcoal grill the chicken breast fillet until done. Slice into strips or flakes

Heat a tiny amount of olive oil and pesto sauce in a pan and toss cooked spaghetti until well-coated. Shake up some parmesan cheese and toss flaked grilled chicken. :-)

Serve with wine or iced tea!
