Easy main. From Satter's Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family
Serves: 6
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves, about 1½ pounds (I halved this recipe and still had leftovers...)
  • 1½ cups grated Parmesan or Romano or Asiago (about 6 ounces)
  • 6 Tbspns pesto (look for basil as the first ingredient)
  • (I had extra pesto since I used less chicken)
  1. preheat oven to 425. Mix 2 Tbspns grated cheese with 6 Tbspns pesto. Rub or pat mixture onto chicken until light even coating. Sprinkle remaining cheese into a plate. Press both sides of the chicken into the cheese to form a coating. You might need to refresh your plate of cheese, careful not to contaminate the cheese after handling the raw chicken...
  2. Place chicken into a baking dish and bake for 25 minutes or until internal temp is 165 degrees
