2 tbsp Basil Pesto

Recipe Directions for Basil Pesto Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 375; Cut each chicken breast lengthwise into 2 or 3 pieces strips.

  2. Spray a 9x12 casserole dish with non-stick spray, then spread 1/4 cup basil pesto over the bottom of the dish. Lay chicken strips over the pesto, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then spread 1/4 cup more basil pesto over the chicken.

  3. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake the chicken for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is firm and cooked through.
