Ingredients
4 PERDUE® FIT & EASY® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sweet chile powder
2 tablespoons dark instant espresso powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
1 4.5-ounce can green chiles
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup pistachios, shelled and toasted
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Instructions
1 Combine chili powder, instant espresso, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in 1-2 tablespoons to form a thick paste.

TIP: Slice the chicken breast and serve topped with pesto for an appetizer or pair with grilled zucchini and squash for a healthy dinner option.
2 Evenly rub a thin coating of the spice mixture on each side of the chicken breast.
3 Place chicken breasts on a grill preheated to medium. Cook 4-6 minutes on each side or an internal temperature of 170°F is reached.
4 For the pesto, place the drained green chiles, garlic clove, lime juice, pistachios and parmesan cheese into a blender, pulse until chunky. Add 1/4 cup olive oil while pulsing the blender a few more times to incorporate. Place pesto in a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste.
