Instructions
  1. Prepare chicken breasts by cutting into filets. Arrange in a 9x13 inch glass pan. Stir together marinade ingredients. Pour over chicken coating both sides. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. (We began the marinade process directly after lunch so our chicken marinated for 3 hours prior to cooking for dinner).
  2. In a food processor, add ingredients for the spinach cilantro pesto. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
  3. On a preheated grill, cook chicken breasts and lime halves until done.
  4. Serve over brown rice or pasta of your choice.

What you will need for the Blackened Cajun Catfish:
  • 4 Catfish Filets

  • 2-3 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Heat olive oil in a large cast iron skillet on medium high heat. Sprinkle both sides of catfish filets with Cajun seasoning. Use as much or as little as you like. Place in the hot pan and fry for 4 minutes on each side until browned and crispy. Remove from pan and place on lined baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for another 3-4 minutes.
