Pesto Lemon Chicken

This is the easiest chicken you will ever make! All you need is a container of pre-made pesto (or use your own home made pesto if you happen to have some in your fridge) and lemon juice. My favorite store bought pesto these days is Three Bridges Basil Pesto (they even have a kale pesto that I would like to try) which you can find at Safeway. Pesto chicken is perfect for a quick weeknight meal when you have just a few minutes to get dinner on the table-yum!

Stir lemon juice into pesto and spread mixture on one side of the chicken breasts. Place pesto side on grill pan or barbeque and spread rest of pesto on top side of chicken. Cook until done and serve with lemon slices. Enjoy!
