serves 4 
½ cup (2 oz/60 g) hulled pumpkin seeds 
2 cups (2 oz/60 g) packed cilantro leaves 
5 Tbsp (3 f l oz/80 ml) olive oil, plus more for greasing 
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice 
1 clove garlic 
½ serrano chile, seeded 
Salt and freshly ground pepper 
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 6 oz (185 g) each 
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Spread the pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet and toast until fragrant and just golden, 8–10 minutes. 
In a food processor, purée the toasted pumpkin seeds, cilantro, 4 Tbsp (2 fl oz/60 ml) of the oil, the lime juice, garlic, chile, ¼ tsp salt, and ¼ cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) water until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. 
Prepare a grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-high heat, and oil the rack. Brush the chicken on both sides with the remaining 1 Tbsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill, turning once, until cooked through, 12–13 minutes. 
Transfer the chicken to warmed plates, spoon the pesto on top, and serve.
