Superb recipe for Char grilled chicken with red pesto :
4 skinless chicken breasts
120gm sun dried tomatoes
1 clove garlic
25gm parmesan cheese
25gm pine nuts
130 ml olive oil
Salt and pepper
Heat un-greased grill over a medium heat for 5 minutes Lightly oil the rib of the pan and place the chicken breast on the pan
Season with salt and pepper
Leave on heat for 4 to 5 minutes so the chicken gets the distinctive sear lines Carefully turn over and do the other side for 4 to 5 minutes
To make the pesto place all ingredients in the blender, (pine nuts, garlic, Parmesan, olive oil and sun dried tomatoes) and blitz.
This can be done in a pestle and mortar if you don’t have a blender. It should be a paste texture. You can add more oil if the texture is not quite right.
Remove the chicken from the heat and serve with pasta of your choice with the pesto dressing.Share and Enjoy:
