Baked Pesto Chicken

Baked Pesto Chicken

Inspired by For the Love of Cooking and Cooking Light
Makes 6 Servings

4 6-oz. chicken breasts
80 grams pesto
64 grams Fresh mozzarella cheese
Salt & Pepper
6 oz. pasta (angel hair)

Heat oven to 375. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lay chicken in an 8x12 glass pan coated in nonstick cooking spray. Lay chicken breasts in pan (or tenders with servings divided by foil). Spread each serving with 20 grams of pesto. Cover with foil and bake until chicken is cooked through; 25 minutes. Uncover and top each serving with 16 grams of cheese; bake until cheese is melted, 5 more minutes. Serve hot atop angel hair pasta (1.5 oz. dry per serving).

Review: Loved it!! Way too easy to fix and it reheated great (just made the noodles tonight; the chicken was refrigerated overnight). Reheats well, so long as you wait on your noodles until day of!
