Chicken In Pesto sauce

Chicken In Pesto Sauce Recipe Or How to make Chicken in Pesto Sauce

Hey Friends,

Day before yesterday I has posted about Toum Chicken which is sort of fusion of stir frying and Lebanese cuisine. It sure was yummy, do check it out by clicking on the link. It was full of garlic flavor and it being one of my favorite ingredients, I tried something else too, Chicken in Petso Sauce.  This was another attempt to make something for my kiddos and my niece who were asking for chicken!!

Many of you might know how to make Pesto Sauce, but still I would share it again how to make it for those who don't know. I used a very similar method to the Toum Chicken, but the flavor was totally different even though it was filled with Garlic along with Mint and Basil.

This is another super 'quicky' dish which you love to have once in a while!! Am I right? Quick and pleasurable!! Ok, I know what you are thinking but now get your track to the kitchen!!

The wonderful strong flavor of Garlic and Mint will just amaze you. Obviously the hero is the sauce but you have ensure chicken is cooked perfectly too.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  1. 1 Chicken breast cut into medium size pieces.
  2. Basil leaves.
  3. Mint Leaves
  4. 4-5 Garlic cloves
  5. Walnuts. You may use Cashew nut as well if you don't have walnut.
  6. Olive oil.
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Crushed Black Pepper.


Method:
  1. First, we will make the Pesto sauce and It is very simple.
  2. Mix Basil, Mint leaves, Garlic cloves, 1 table spoon of olive oil, Walnuts, little salt and pepper in a grinder.
  3. Grind it well but not to a fine paste. You should grind it only to the level where you can feel the grains of walnut. It should have a nutty bite.
  4. Your Pesto Sauce is ready. Keep it aside.
  5. Now heat 1 tea spoon oil in a non stick pan.
  6. Add the chicken pieces and stir fry them for about 5-7 minutes till they are cooked properly.
  7. Add the garlic sauce, stir and cook for another two minutes.
  8. Serve hot with Love!
The warm taste of pesto will amaze you!! Again it is a snack thing or you can eat it with Buttered Rice as well.
