Layers of Flavor

Another delicious dish brought to you by the babe. I think this one beats the last one I posted (HERE). I am definitely well taken care of here in our little love abode.

This is the Pesto Baked Chicken, which can be found HERE. The delicious flavors are layered beautifully to compliment each other in every bite. Mmm, making my mouth water just thinking of it again. Another must try. Enjoy!

Serves 4


4 Thinly Sliced Chicken Breast-- 4 Tbsp of Basil Pesto-- 2 Tomatoes, sliced-- Salt and Pepper, to taste-- ½ cup of Fresh Bread Crumbs-- ¼ cup of Freshly Grated Parmiggiano Reggiano-- Little Olive Oil


1) Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, line a baking dish with aluminum foil. 2) Drizzle a little olive oil in the bottom of your baking dish and lay the chicken breast on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper. 3) Smear 1 Tbsp of pesto on top of each piece of chicken, lay about 2 slices of tomatoes on top of the pesto, sprinkle evenly with the bread crumbs and the parmiggiano. 4) Drizzle a bit more olive oil over the top and bake it for about 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown and crispy.
