Pecan Cilantro Pesto Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: May 13, 2014
Very good. I tried this and the second time, I used 1/4 c. mandarin oranges instead of the oil. I drizzled the mandarin juice for consistency. This recipe can be used with pecans, walnuts or pine nuts. Sometimes I use basil leaves instead of cilantro for a different taste. I used pesto on chicken breasts and also on pork chops. My family loved it! ENJOY !

Pretty good...a different twist on pesto. Next time I make it I think it will taste good with some lime juice added for a bit of a tang.

My friend Matt made this and recommends using another type of nut. He topped chicken with the pesto and baked 1 hr. He reports the pecan tasted too strong for the first few bites, but ended up tasting OK.
