What you need:

1 Pound chicken tenders

2 Cups loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves

2 Scallions, sliced

1/4 Cup fresh lime juice

1/4 Cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 Tsp. chili powder

2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 25 minutes; Serves 4 adults.)

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Whisk your fresh lime juice, soy sauce, olive oil, and chili powder in a large bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade in a small bowl. Add tenders to the remaining marinade, and toss to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, place cilantro, scallions, sesame seeds and the reserved marinade in a food processor and process until fairly smooth.

  4. Oil the grill rack. Remove the chicken from the marinade, (discard marinade) and grill until cooked through in the middle. (About 2 minutes per side.) Serve the chicken with the cilantro-sesame pesto.

  5. Eat & enjoy!
