Instructions
Almond Basil Pesto
  1. Add all the ingredients of pesto in a blender except water and blend until smooth. Taste and add few drops of water at a time to get the desired consistency.
  2. In a bowl, add chopped tomato & onion. To it add salt, black pepper & lime juice to taste and mix.
  3. Assemble by laying the crackers on a plate. In another bowl, mix shredded chicken with pesto. Place a tbsp of pesto chicken mix on each cracker and top them with onion-tomato mix. Serve immediately.
Notes
For shredding chicken at home, simply add chicken pieces in a pot and fill it with water. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for good 10-12 mins or until chicken turns white and on poking there is no redness. Once cool, you can store shredded chicken in ziplock in freezer.
