I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Chicken with Green Onion Pesto

Chicken with Green Onion Pesto

Random week slams shut with a simple grilled chicken breast with me using my vegetable obsession – the green onion as a simple little pesto. Serves 2


  • 2 chicken breasts, flatted out 1/2" thick
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper


  1. Preheat dry griddle or skillet on high heat
  2. Coat chicken all over with oil, pinch Kosher salt and few grinds pepper each side
  3. Lay chicken "presentation" side down in pan
  4. If using a griddle: cook 3 minutes, turn 1/4 to make diamond effect cook another minute, flip and repeat. If using skillet, do 4 minutes each side. Apply pressure once flipped, using heavy plate
  5. In processor, add green onions, ginger, garlic, kosher salt, cayenne, whizz until finely chopped then pour oil while it mixes until smooth
  6. Immediately spread generous tablespoon pesto over hot chicken
