Roast Chicken with Rosemary-Walnut Pesto
- Estimated Cost $9.50
- 8 Comments
This chicken dish is homey yet classy. The warm scents of rosemary and garlic made my kitchen smell amazing and the chicken was the delicious match with a simple green salad and crusty sourdough bread. I used a robust extra virgin olive oil in the pesto—perfect for standing up to the bold lemon and rosemary flavors in this dish.
