Cheesy Pesto Chicken

This is really easy and really good.  I love fresh pesto sauce.

Pesto Sauce:

2 cups fresh basil
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup pine nuts
3 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Cheesy Pesto Chicken:

4-5 chicken breasts
1 cup basil pesto
mozzarella cheese, grated

  • Pound the chicken breasts so they are thinner (1/4 - 1/2 inch)
  • Place the chicken on a greased 9X13 pan.  Spread the pesto sauce over the top and then sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Uncover and bake for another 10 minutes.
