I found a simple recipe on-line a few weeks ago for baked pesto chicken and decided I had to try it. I changed around some of the ingredients to get a slightly different flavor. It is super easy and is ready really quickly! Kent and I both loved it and decided we would have to make it a regular dinner item!
Baked Pesto Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup refrigerated basil pesto (just use the jarred pesto from the grocery store)
1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the chicken in a glass casserole dish and cover with pesto. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Remove from oven and top with tomatoes and cheese. Place the dish back in the over for 3 - 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
