We've Arrived, and a Quick Chicken Dinner

We arrived at our destination 4 days ago. The trip was really not that bad - three days in the car and the girls were mostly happy. Although, they were happier to get out of the car and overrun Grandma's house. Dinner the day of our arrival was Pesto Marinated Chicken on top of salad. It's pretty simple and pretty tasty too. I really liked the berries on the salad.

1 batch Cilantro Pesto, thinned with olive oil
1 pound chicken tenders
field greens
strawberries, quartered
blueberries
balsamic vinaigrette or other dressing of your choice

Place pesto and chicken in a large gallon zip bag and toss to coat chicken with the pesto. Place in refrigerator and marinate several hours. Just before dinner, take chicken out of the bag, shake off any dripping pesto and grill the chicken a couple of minutes on each side or until cooked through. Slice chicken and place on top of field greens. Sprinkle berries on top and serve.
