Lemon Pesto Chicken Pasta




Finally, a beautiful warm day! This is the perfect recipe to make when you don't feel like using the oven. It's a great summery meal. You can either grill the chicken or cook it in the crock pot. I've done it both ways but today I grilled my chicken. Either way it will be a hit!
