Pesto Chicken

  • Lemon-Basil Pesto

  • Grape tomatoes

  • Sliced chicken breast

  • Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Depending on the thickness of your chicken breast, you can choose to split the chicken breast in halves like shown here. Also allows for quicker cooking time.

  3. Season raw chicken with a little salt and pepper.

  4. Smear 1 Tbs of pesto on top of chicken, grape tomatoes and a small sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

  5. Bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes. Possibly longer if you have thicker chicken breast.

  6. If needed, broil on high for a few minutes to crispy up cheese
