Baked Pesto Chicken


Baked Pesto Chicken

This was delicious and so easy!  My son Zach sent me the recipe so I made it for Sunday dinner and it was perfect.  I made the pesto fresh from my garden, you can find that recipe here but of course you can use store bought pesto to make it even easier.

5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or as many as you need)

22 ounces basil pesto

3 – 5 Roma tomatoes, sliced

8 oz fresh Mozzarella, sliced

salt and pepper

Parmesan cheese for topping

Italian seasoning

1   Preheat oven to 400.  Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Arrange chicken breasts in pan and spread pesto over each piece.

3  Place tomato slices over pesto, season with salt and pepper then place Mozzarella slices over the tomatoes.

4  Sprinkle with Parmesan and Italian seasoning.

5  Bake 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
