Pesto: you’ve had it on pasta or maybe as a dip. Let us introduce you to yet another way to use this Italian favorite. Here, we’re spreading it onto oven-roasted chicken breasts, using it as a glue to hold down a layer of panko breadcrumbs. That way, you get herby aromatics, meaty juices, and crispy golden goodness that’s sure to please everyone.
