Healthy Chicken with Pesto
You know when you feel like having some chicken and want to do something healthy, tasty and easy but you can't stand that grilled chicken anymore. Well, when I get sick of the grilled chicken, this is what I do. It's fast, easy and is always delicious!
Next time you get visitors for dinner, you should definitely think about this option, since it is really beautiful on your plate and tasty.
1 Chicken Breast Fillet
1 Table spoon of pesto
1 Lime juice
Start pre-heating the oven at 350ºF (200ºC). Now let's season the chicken with the pesto, a little olive oil, salt, black pepper and the lime juice. Mix all these spices together over the chicken with your hands and make sure the chicken has it on both sides.
With the chicken well seasoned, take a piece of aluminum foil and fold it in half. Put the chicken breast fillet over the folded aluminum foil and close it with the chicken inside like an envelope. Make sure it is all closed up and put it on a pan and let it cook in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Once the 20 minutes has passed, take the chicken out and check if it is well cooked with a fork, it should be tender and juicy. You can serve the chicken like this or even take it to the broiler so you can toast the top of it a little. In this case I didn't use the broiler.
