Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Mix duck fat, scallions, ginger, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Place chicken in a baking dish. Add 1 tablespoon ginger pesto under the skin of each chicken breast; massage to spread evenly. Coat chicken with remaining pesto and season with additional salt.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a breast should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
