Since I LOVE to bake and cook, I’ve decided I would like to try and post a new recipe daily. I love
sharing recipes, so I think it’ll be fun! And since I enjoy health and fitness, I’m going to try to keep
it healthy. I Have a sweet tooth that I cure occasionally, so I’ll defiantly be throwing some sweet treats
So I make this chicken quite a bit because my family LOVES it. It’s super simple to make as well.
Pesto Tomato Mozzarella Chicken
3-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
4-6 Tablespoons Prepared Pesto (I make homemade. Recipe will be below)
1-2 Roma Tomatoes
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated (you can use fresh mozzarella or the shredded kind)
Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the pesto on top of chicken breasts
Slice tomatoes and lay on top of each chicken breast
Sprinkle with cheese
Bake at 400F for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is done
2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 cup freshly grated Romano and/or Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts
3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper
Put basil leaves and pine nuts into food processor and pulse
Add the garlic and Parmesan/Romano cheese and pulse again
Scrape down the sides of the food processor
While food processor is running, slowly add olive oil.
Occasionally stop to scrape down the sides of food processor.
Once mixed, and some salt and pepper.
