Some days you just have to throw dinner together with whatever you have in the kitchen. This meal came from one of those days, but I’m happy to say, it turned out pretty well. It’s a nice combination of some of my favorite flavors, and ended up being a nice, light meal for a busy weeknight.
4 chicken breast halves
1 jar basil pesto
12 basil leaves
shredded Italian cheese
- Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and place the chicken breasts inside.
- Spread the pesto on top the chicken and then lay the fresh basil on top. (about 3-4 pieces of basil per breast)
3. Slice the tomatoes and place them on top of the basil.
4. Top everything with shredded cheese and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
This is easy to serve with a side of pasta, garlic bread, or salad. Enjoy! Check out more new recipes here:
