During one of my free moments, with my stomach making those unflattering noises, I decided it was time to whip something together for dinner. Staring at the clock, I thought, sandwich? Frozen pizza? Then I opened the freezer and found a package of frozen, boneless chicken breasts, looked in the fridge for some veggies and came across a jar of pesto. Suddenly, a quick, delicious meal was coming to life!
Simply lay the chicken breast in a pan and place in the oven on 350F and bake for approximately 20 minutes*. Remove chicken, top with pesto and put back into the oven for another 10 minutes. *Be sure to adjust time to ensure chicken is fully cooked.
Add slices of tomato and crimini mushrooms, bake for 5 minutes, then add your shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted.
This is a simple meal that you can throw in the oven and walk away from! To use up my leftovers, I cooked some pasta, mixed it with pesto and laid the leftover chicken over it. It tasted great re-heated and the pasta kept me full until the work day was over.
A flavourful recipe I definitely recommend for those busy weeknights!
