Here’s a yummy recipe for all you basil growers out there. Wowza…this Pesto Baked Chicken is good!! I’m sure some of you have a bag or two of this green goodness sitting in your freezer too, right? And hello, the instructions consist of 6 sentences! So easy. Pine nuts would be awesome on this chicken, but I didn’t have any. I usually use walnuts instead anyway, much cheaper, and we think it tastes de-lish!
