Chicken Walnut Pesto

For my main dish tonight I made some parmesan breaded chicken, with some fresh walnut pesto (I used my fresh basil from my garden).  I figured why not add a little nutty flavor to it.  To combine with this dish I sautéed some asparagus in a skillet, wrapped it with prosciutto and placed it on top of the chicken and pesto.  Since I had some Freekeh grain left from my appetizer I drizzled it over my dish.  The combination of all the flavors kept all taste buds exploding.  Below Is a picture of all the ingredients in the food processor.  Pesto is so easy to make and you can add it to so many dishes.

    I have never heard of Freekeh grain. At the risk of sounding stupid how is it cooked and where do you find it?
