Because we’re constantly looking for new ways to ‘chicken for dinner,’ we developed an Asian-style pesto, swapping scallions for typical basil, then adding sesame oil, lime juice, fresh ginger, and sriracha. With ginger carrots and fluffy rice on the side, this condiment is our favorite new way to top our friend Chicken Cutlet.
