This pesto chicken salad is a great way to use fresh pesto up and make a summer chicken salad that is bursting with pesto flavor.
The chicken salad is great served over greens for a lunch or a light dinner but is also fantastic stuffed between ciabatta bread, and scooped with crackers for an easy snack.
And if you love recipes that combine pesto and chicken, try my pesto chicken breast with mozzarella.Print
