Ingredients:

  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper for seasoning chicken
  • 1/2 CUP Basil pesto
  • 1/2 CUP Grated mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. Trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken pieces, then cut each chicken breast lengthwise into 2 or 3 pieces.
  3. Spray a 9×12 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  4. Spread 1/4 cup basil pesto over the bottom of the dish. Lay chicken strips over the pesto, then spread 1/4 cup more basil pesto over the chicken.
  5. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake the chicken for 25-30 minutes, just until chicken is barely firm and cooked through.
  6. When chicken is barely cooked through, remove foil and sprinkle chicken with 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese. Put dish back into the oven without foil and cook 5 minutes more, just until cheese is melted.
  7. After you melt the cheese for 5 minutes, switch the oven to broil and broiled for 5 minutes more, just long enough to get the cheese lightly browned.
  8. Enjoy!
