Several days ago I was preparing for a lunch meeting and wanted to wow my guest with my grilling skills. I found this recipe from my Weber Grilling Book. It was so simple and delicious!
(pictures are mine..recipe not)
Cilantro Pesto Chicken Tenders
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts
(or just get them already chopped in a bag)
Recipe calls for 2 medium garlic cloves.. I added 3 (love garlic)
1 1/2 cups loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves with tender stems
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh Italian parsley leaves and tender stems
(add salt and pepper)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Blend all in food processor.
Place 2lbs of chicken breast tenders (I use organic) in a plastic bag with the pesto.
Let marinade in fridge for 2hr minimum.
Grill over Direct high heat until meat is firm and juices run
Here is the finished product! I made a baked potato with some side salad. Healthy and easy.
Btw..you can even sprinkle with a little lime juice.
Hoping you're enjoying the summer so far : )
