We love chicken grilled on the BBQ…there’s just no better summer meal. Two of our absolute faves are BBQ Chicken Kabobs, and BBQ Beer Roasted Chicken. So good. But I’m always looking for new chicken recipes, so when I stumbled on this recipe for Pesto Grilled Chicken I just knew I had to try it. Basil + chicken + BBQ = Heaven on Earth. This recipe is especially delicious if you use all your fresh garden basil, and make a batch of pesto – the flavour from homemade pesto is unreal!
By adding the pesto sauce before grilling, it has a chance to infuse this chicken with flavour while it’s grilling, and it also makes it so moist. Then pair it up with a simple fresh tomato and basil pasta. This is a gorgeous summer dinner.
Now just picture yourself sitting on your deck on a warm and sunny summer night enjoying this meal! Summer on a plate.
And as an added bonus, leftovers make a great lunch – just shred any leftover chicken and toss it with the pasta and you have lunch the next day!
