This is a simple recipe, and it tastes so good! All you need for this easy dish is chicken breast, pesto, tomatoes, and cheese. We ate the finished chicken as a sandwich, but it would also taste delicious on a serving of pasta tossed with some pesto sauce.
Baked Pesto Chicken
4 Chicken Breasts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut chicken in half to make each piece thinner, you’ll end up with 8 pieces of chicken. Place chicken in pan & layer with pesto sauce. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Place one tomato slice on each piece of chicken. Cover with cheese. I used shredded cheddar and monterey jack because that’s all I had on hand. I think it would taste really good with mozzarella. Put back in oven and bake for 5 more minutes.
