Chicken Pesto

Since it’s Monday re-blog I wanted to re-blog one of my most favorite things to do with chicken on the grill. I use the pesto recipe that I have posted on my blog and marinate the chicken breasts in it. I didn’t have time to marinate for more than 2 hours and they were perfectly delicious. Just don’t overcook chicken , turn them every 3 minutes so they don’t burn . Shouldn’t take more than 8 minutes to cook . If you’re looking for something new to do with chicken on the grill and you missed this recipe last summer here you go. Enjoy!
