Description

Charred grilled chicken combines with bright, fresh pesto for the perfect simple entree.

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces Large Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
  • Salt And Pepper
  • ¼ cups Prepared Pesto, Plus More If Desired
  • Oil For The Grill

Preparation

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium heat and oil the grill. Sprinkle as many pieces of chicken as you are using with salt and pepper.

When grill is hot, place chicken on the grill and let it cook over halfway without disturbing it, about 20 minutes for 2-inch-thick pieces of chicken.

Flip chicken and spread about 2 tablespoons of pesto on each piece, enough to form a coating of pesto. Let the chicken finish cooking through on the second side without disturbing it, 10–15 minutes.

Serve the chicken immediately with your favorite dinner. Enjoy!

Notes:
1. I portion one large chicken breast (anything over 8 ounces) for two people. How many people you are serving will dictate how much chicken and pesto you need.
2. For quicker cook time, cut the pieces of chicken in half through the breast to form 2 thinner pieces. Chicken an inch or less thick will cook through in a little less than half the time.
