If making pest, puree basil, spinach, garlic, walnuts, oil, and water in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a large bowl, combine 1 tablespoon pesto, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and chicken. Form into desired size patties. I got six, this recipe said 4. Lightly oil hot grill. Grill patties, covered, or 4 minutes. Flip patties and cook through.
