|Pesto Chicken Salad|
Pesto adds a little spark to almost any dish. Recently I was planning to make chicken salad and noticed that I had a jar of pesto in the fridge I thought I would use it in the salad. Here's the recipe:
6 boneless skinless chicken thighs poached and diced
1/2 cup pine nuts toasted
1/4 cup basil pesto
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 stalk of celery diced
When I make chicken salad I like to poach the chicken because it always comes out quite tender.
|Dice poached chicken thighs.|
|Toast pine nuts.|
|Add toasted pine nuts and pesto.|
|Add mayo and mix all together lightly.|
|Ready to eat.|
I served this on a bed of Romaine lettuce leaves garnished with tangerine slices. A croissant finished off the dish.
