Take the stress out of dinnertime by preparing our easy Weeknight Pesto Chicken! This simple chicken dinner recipe is made with some pretty basic ingredients, but packs in a whole lot of flavor. The best part is that it looks like something that took hours to make (We won't tell if you don't!).

What You'll Need:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil; saute chicken 8 to 10 minutes, turning once during cooking.
  3. Place a slice of cheese over each chicken breast, spoon 2 tablespoons pesto over cheese, and top each with a tomato slice. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese evenly over top.
  4. Cover skillet and heat 2 to 4 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in center and cheese is melted.
