As summer is now in full swing and we can start to gather with friends and family again, it is time for lighter meals that are bright, vibrant, flavorful and pair with a nice white wine. This dish is one of my favorites because it is so easy to prepare even for a large group of 6 or 8, because it has essentially 3 components and it also allows you to feature great summer produce like squash. In this recipe I used bone in skin on chicken breast because the hard seard, crackling skin on chicken gives such a nice roasted flavor and leaves them meat tender and unctuous without adding a lot of unneeded butter or oil. For the Pesto I love to use Pine nuts or Pingole’s because they are so buttery and smooth when roasted and then pureed, which makes for a great texture to the sauce.
