Since I just recently posted another recipe with tarragon, thought I'd do another to show that it can be used on beef AND chicken very nicely. And get totally different tastes!! This got a thumbs up from my husband and me!! And there was a ton left over!
Chicken Tarragon Pesto Pasta
1/2 box of cooked farfalle noodles
2 cooked chicken breasts (seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic)
For the tarragon pesto
1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1/2 cup pan-toasted pine nuts
1 tbsp. dried tarragon or large bunch of tarragon leaves, chopped
juice of one lemon
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
1. To make the tarragon pesto, puree grated Parmesan, toasted pine nuts, tarragon, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil until smooth with a hand-held stick blender or in a food processor.
2. Put the cooked pasta, pesto, chicken,in a serving bowl, season with salt and black pepper, and toss well, coating the pasta and chicken evenly with the pesto. Serve immediately.
