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.)
Preheat grill to medium-high.
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.
Meanwhile, place cilantro, scallions, sesame seeds and the reserved marinade in a food processor and process until fairly smooth.
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.
Eat & enjoy!
