Recipe: Pesto Tomato Mozzarella Chicken

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
your way.

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   

INGREDIENTS :

3-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
4-6 Tablespoons Prepared Pesto (I make homemade. Recipe will be below)

BAKING INSTRUCTIONS:

Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the pesto on top of chicken breasts

Slice tomatoes and lay on top of each chicken breast

Bake at 400F for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is done

Enjoy!
