AMORE® SICILIAN GRILLED CHICKEN
Sicilian style pesto made with tomato paste tastes great on chicken, fish or pasta. This chicken is good hot or cold, so it’s great to take to a picnic.
In a food processor or blender, combine and chop the almonds, Amore Garlic Paste, basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the tomatoes, cheese, Amore Sun Dried Tomato Paste, water, and oil and process until finely chopped.
Heat a barbecue grill or grill pan. Brush with oil. Salt and pepper the chicken and place on the grill. Cook 4 minutes or until nicely browned. Turn the chicken and cook 3 to 4 minutes longer or until just cooked through.
Transfer the chicken to a platter. Spoon on the prepared sauce. Serve hot or at room temperature.
