In an attempt to branch out from our typical (yet one of our favorites) use of pesto-the traditional pesto and pasta-we threw together only a few ingredients to create a delicious meal.


boneless, skinless chicken breasts

basil pesto

mozzarella cheese

chicken broth

dried basil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Take the chicken breasts and place them in a baking pan. Spread a generous helping of pesto on the top, then cover with mozzarella cheese. Pour a thin layer of chicken broth in the bottom of the pan in order to help the chicken bake. Add the basil to the chicken broth for additional flavor as the chicken bakes. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes. The end result is a delish twist on the traditional pesto dish.
