Deliciously Moist Baked Chicken Breast (with only 3 additional ingredients)

This is a recipe that was suggested to me by someone who attended one of my cooking classes. It’s become a favorite because not only is it fast, easy and delicious; it’s also incredible moist, which can be a challenge when baking boneless, skinless chicken breast.  An added bonus, it’s pretty enough to serve at your next dinner party.


Three Ingredients (not counting the chicken breasts):  4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 1/4 cup store-bought pesto (I used one from Costco but any will do), 1/2 a container of cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half, 3 ounces of shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese


Place chicken breasts on foil-lined baking sheet. Spread 1-2 teaspoons of pesto on each chicken breast. Top with tomato halves and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes (depending on the thickness of the chicken breast).
