- 3 chicken breasts cut into strips
- Burrito size Tortillas
- 1 cup fresh Cilantro (stems removed)
- about 15 Almonds
- 2 1/2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 2 tablespoons Minced Garlic
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Lime Juice
- 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
- 1/4 cup of Chicken Broth
- 1 teaspoon salt
- sour cream
- diced tomatoes
First I placed the almonds into the food processor to finely chop them. I used the Nutribullet. Then I added in the rest of the marinade ingredients and blended until a nice bright green cilantro pesto was formed.
I then combined the chicken with the marinade and let it sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Then I sprayed my skillet with non-stick cooking spray and cooked the chicken thoroughly. Once the chicken was done I stuffed a burrito for each person with their favorite stuffers. I like mine with lettuce, cheese, sour cream, and salsa.
As I dumped it into the pan, I thought to myself there is no way my family was going to eat this. Well I was wrong, the taste was so good they quickly got over the fact that they were eating green chicken!
