Baked Pesto Chicken (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 04/30/2015 - This recipe for basil chicken is easy to make, and sure to please. Take some chicken, smear it with basil pesto, bake it until done, top it with tomatoes and Swiss cheese, pop it in the broiler and bang! you've got dinner.

You can substitute mozzarella for Swiss cheese, and you can also cook it on the grill in stead of baking.

Fresh Basil Pesto Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • ⅔ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup freshly grated Romano cheese

Directions:
Combine the basil, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor and blend until coarsely chopped.

Add ½ cup of olive oil and process until fully blended and smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

If you're serving it right away, then add all the remaining oil and blend until smooth. Pour the pesto into a large bowl and stir in the cheese.

If you intend to store pesto a few days, or if you want to freeze it, then put it into an air-tight container and drizzle remaining oil over the top.

If refrigerating, then add cheese before serving.

You can freeze pesto for up to 3 months. Just thaw it our, mix in cheese, and serve.

Thank you for trying Kerry! I was unable to open the link though. Another celiac.com page pops up telling me I do not have an account for it.

I don't use these things they are usually sodium bombs!

I don't Usually use the super processed stuff, which this is. I use the spices or the gluten free spice mixes. I assume maybe something just didn't set well but I doubt it's gluten because I believe they're reputable. My husband doesn't have celiac and said his tummy is weird too, so I doubt it's gluten. I'll call them today to be sure.

I use them, too.
