No grill involved last night, but it was so good I had to share.

Boneless/skinless chicken breasts coated heavily with rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley and a bit of parmesan with a little granulated garlic then wrapped in bacon and baked (was gonna put em on the OTS but the Red Sox game was on and I wanted to stay inside).

My first time making pesto, pulled some basil from the yard, added some real nice parmesan I've been saving just for this, couple cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. Used the baby bullet to blend it all, should not have, it was a fine puree in a few seconds... live and learn. Will also add pine nuts next time.

Pesto was REALLY strong, only ended up adding about 2.5 tablesopons to a pound of pasta. Lots left over. Anyone know if I can freeze it or how long I can expect it to last in the fridge?

That looks good enough to enter in a bacon throwdown! I wonder where you could find one of those. Hmm.

That was my intention, but... got into the baseball game and didn't want to fire up the grill last night. Sadly it doesn't qualify. Soon... Soon I will find one to enter!

Pesto freezes fine and will last quite a while. You can put it in ice cube trays to make it easier to use just smaller amounts at a time.

Yes, I see that now, somehow I missed the (Not BBQ) portion of the title. :tsk:

My bad brother. There is still time to cook another bacon dish though!
