So the inspiration for this recipe came from here.
Except instead of doing pesto butter, I just rubbed the chicken down with pesto…
So you just need a whole chicken and pesto (Homemade) I have NEVER in my life had store-bought pesto. I think that is just wrong!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
rinse chicken with cold water and dab dry with paper towels and place in a dutch oven or roasting pan
Then rub that baby down with some pesto
as much or little as you want, inside and out
bake for an hour or hour and a half or until chicken is 165 degrees
pull out of the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before serving
