  5. Combine remaining pesto sauce with the Parmesan cheese; cover and chill until ready to use.
  6. Light the grill or preheat the broiler and boil a pot of water to cook the pasta al dente, according to the directions on the package.
  7. While the pasta cooks, grill or broil the chicken breasts, coated side up about 4 inches from heat source until chicken is done, about 4 to 5 minutes per side, turning once.
