Pesto Chicken

By Ange's Table

Spring is in the air.  I can feel it.  I swear.  The days are getting longer.  The sun sets are so pretty.

I want to invite friends over, have laughs, sit around the fire pit.  But no one wants to sit by a fire right now.  This virus going around has everyone in hibernation.  How can I roast a @Smashmallow without fire?  Guess I’ll have to make one all by myself.

So instead, I will make believe my friends are coming over.  And make this Pesto Chicken.  This is always a hit at our summer BBQ’s.  The longer you let the chicken marinate, the yummier it is. 

In a large bowl, add your chicken and pesto
Mix well, coating all parts of the chicken
Remember to preheat your grill
Make sure to have a hot grill and only turn your chicken once
Who's ready for dinner?

Pesto Chicken

Mix your chicken and pesto in a bowl.  Cover with plastic wrap. 

Marinate at least 2 hours.  The longer you marinate the chicken, the better it is.

When you are ready to eat, preheat your grill to 400′.  

Grill your chicken 7 minutes.   Turn only once, grill an additional 5-7 minutes, until your chicken is cooked through.  

Do you have something special that you like to make when your friends come over?  I find that the simple meals that I make, are the best.
