  • 1

    Line a baking sheet with plastic wrap. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, the Parmesan, the Worcestershire, and a few grinds of black pepper. Wet your hands with cold water, and use them to mix the ingredients.

    Combine the mayonnaise and pesto in a small bowl and whisk together. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

    Arrange the chicken patties on the grill grate and grill, turning once, until the patties are cooked through (165F), about 30 minutes.
