Spicy Thai Chicken Linguine

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Jostlori

Cilantro, giner and lime - how could you go wrong with this? This recipe is an Asian-inspired twist on Pesto Genovese. Yum! This would go great with a nice Gewurztraminer...

I loved this dish! I will increase the cilantro just a tad next time. I loved using the broiler to cook the chicken. The seasoning tasted so good on the crispy edges of the chicken. I used pickled jalapenoes instead a fresh one. I wanted to used ground ginger but told myself that fresh ginger would be better; use fresh ginger! Overall this was great! Made for ZWT9 for the Gourmet Goddesses July 2013.
