Pesto Fettuccine w/ Grilled Chicken

Welcome from Trumpistan.

I promised you guys that I will not stop making food and I delivered on my promise.

So far only two Indians tried to discriminate me on Chicago airport and I  told them to shut the hell up freaking jamadaar lookalikes.

Anyway. most of the white people I have met so far have been very welcoming and that obviously is very nice. So far so good in Trumpistan.

The recipe that I am about to teach you all is from one of my favorite dine-ins in Lahore known as The Pantry.




This recipe is super easy and quick to make. It is called Pesto Fettuccine w/ Grilled Chicken. Pest is originated from Italy but who gives a crap about it we just want to eat and have a good time.

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound fettuccine cooked and soaked

3 cups of fresh basil leaves

1 cup of grated Parmesan Cheese (you can find it from green valley or al fatah)

1/2 cup of pine nuts (can be replaced by cashew nuts)

1 cup of olive oil

3 cloves garlic

2-4 chicken breasts sliced from the middle

2 red chilies (if you want to spice it up a little)




Place the water to boil the pasta.

While the water boils, season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.

We will keep the seasoning of the chicken plain as we don't want to overcome the pesto's flavor.

Heat a grill pan on medium heat and grill the chicken for 4-6 minutes on each side.

Take it out when it is cooked and slice it just like in the picture.




The water must be boiled by now so add the pasta and cook it for 7-8 minutes until al dente.



Time to make the pesto.

Put the pine nuts, parmesan cheese and garlic cloves in a food processor. Pulse it until it is grounded.

Now add the olive oil slowly and keep it running.

Now add the basil leaves and pulse it until it all becomes a green mixture.




Place the pesto and the pasta besides each other.

Pour the pesto over the pasta and watch them both making love to each other. I'M KIDDING, mix the pasta and the pesto thoroughly together.




Place the Pesto Fettuccine in a bowl, top it with some more pine nuts and grate some parmesan cheese over it. Put the grilled chicken slices over it and SERVE!!!
