    Galley Wench's Note:

    Recipe is from Colavita Olive Oil. This will come in handy in Mexico where it's impossible to find fresh basil! I can think of so many uses for the pesto . . .!

      This recipe was delicious! I didn't get a chance to marinate the chicken, but rubbed it with some garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, and chicken bouillon (no olive oil) before grilling it over Mesquite charcoal. I did add about 1.5 TBS of olive oil before tossing it all together. I also used more garlic and I might add more pecans next time. I wasn't sure if I should use only the leaves of the cilantro or if I could use the whole sprig. I opted to use only the leaves. Overall, it was great - fresh and flavorful!
