Baked Pesto Chicken

MMMM….pesto. I love it. I use it all the time. I put it on my sandwiches instead of mayo and use it with pasta! For this simple recipe, I decided to use it to flavor up some baked chicken!

1 jar Basil pesto (or if you have a recipe, you can make your own)
1 pack chicken breast filets
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 cups shredded Italian cheese
1 cup shredded Mozzarella

1. Spread 1/4 cup of the pesto on the bottom of a 9×12 baking pan.

2. Place the chicken breast filets in the pan, and top with the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder.
3. Spoon the rest of the Basil pesto on top of the chicken.

4. Top the chicken with the cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.

This was so amazingly delicious. I served it with a Caesar salad and some garlic bread and we hardly had any leftovers at all! Thanks for stopping by. Check out more new recipes here:
