DIRECTIONS

  • Place the basil, garlic, Parmesan, toasted pine nuts and lemon juice in a food processor and process until combined.
  • Gradually add the olive oil, with the processor still running, and process until smooth.
  • Reserve 3/4 cup of the pesto.
  • Coat the chicken fillets with the remaining pesto and marinate for at least 1 hour, or overnight if time permits.
  • Place the chicken on a tray and cook under a medium grill (broil) for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked, brushing with any remaining marinade during the cooking.
  • Serve with roasted vegetables, (such as eggplant, capsicum, red onion) and the reserved pesto.
