Pan Seared Chicken with Cilantro Pesto

This is a lazy mans dinner. Or a frazzled moms dinner. And some nights, a little bit of both. When I’m feeling frazzled or short on time, a dinner similar to this is my go to. I always have chicken breasts in either my fridge or freezer and pan searing them takes less than 10 minutes. This version is light, summery and bursting with fresh flavor.

Cilantro Pesto Recipe from Mountain Mama Cooks

This cilantro pesto is so good. I’ve think I’ve made it 3 or 4 times in the last month. To say I’m digging it is an understatement. I like to top my scrambled eggs, slather it on a grilled cheese, or top on some seared chicken to make a quick dinner when I’m short on time.

I have a feeling this up coming week is going to be one of those when I’m feeling the crunch. School is winding down, I’m catering twice, and we’ve got t-ball, soccer or hockey every night. It’s nice to have dinners like this in the arsenal.

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend and have an even better week ahead!
