Pesto Chicken

A healthy meal that saves time!? Who would have guessed. This easy to make recipe has become a family favorite. It has only 4 ingredients, takes about 10 minutes to prepare and about 40 minutes to bake depending on the size of the chicken breast. Anyone with kids or a busy lifestyle knows that its all about the simplicity.

If you can, always buy organic meat. The composition of organic VS non organic meat is completely different but this is a completely separate topic for another time. If you are a Costco shopper you can get all 4 ingredients in one convenient stop. They even have organic chicken breast some times (although the source is questionable).


6 Chicken Breast
2 Tomato
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Pesto Sauce


Place the chicken breast in a single layer in an oven safe dish. The dish that I use for this recipe is 4 inches deep. Cover the chicken generously in pesto. Slice the tomato and place one slice of tomato on each chicken breast. Slice the mozzarella cheese and place one slice on top of the tomato. Place in the oven and bake until the chicken is cooked.

This dish is best served with brown rice pasta, rice or even just a salad!
