Surprisingly, this pesto chicken is one of my kids’ favorite meals! I think it has to do with the melted cheese and chicken. The pesto makes the dish, and the kids do not complain. And with three ingredients, it is affordable and quick to get to the table. I have also used sun dried tomato pesto and mozzarella cheese and it was super good.

4 boneless , skinless chicken breasts
4 teaspoons pesto
4 slices provolone cheese
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Place chicken breasts in a oven proof casserole dish. 
  • Spread 1 teaspoon of the pesto evenly over each piece of  chicken.  
  • Place the cheese slices on top of the pesto.
  • Cover and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and the cheese is melted.if you want the cheese browned a bit, uncover the chicken for the last 5 minutes or so until is is a light golden brown.
