Pesto Baked Chicken

Serves 4

4 Thinly Sliced Chicken Breast
4 Tbsp of Basil Pesto
2 Tomatoes, sliced
Salt and Pepper, to taste
cup of Fresh Bread Crumbs
cup of Freshly Grated Parmiggiano Reggiano
Little Olive Oil


1) Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, line a baking dish with aluminum foil.

2) Drizzle a little olive oil in the bottom of your baking dish and lay the chicken breast on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3) Smear 1 Tbsp of pesto on top of each piece of chicken, lay about 2 slices of tomatoes on top of the pesto, sprinkle evenly with the bread crumbs and the parmiggiano.
