Grilled Pesto Chicken

We wanted to create a simple entrée with very little preparation time. The herbs in the pesto give the chicken a nice, clean flavor. It takes just a few minute to marinate and cook. Pair this dish with the Sicilian bean and red pepper salad that could be made a day ahead. The salad has a lemon and parsley dressing that brings all these summer flavors together.
