Pesto! It’s not just for pasta!
Pesto has great flavor and when you buy the store bought, all the hard work has been done for you. It makes a great marinade. I used chicken tenders but you could also use chicken breasts or steak. ohhh steak! I am making that next. It sounds wonderful.
12-15 chicken tenders
½ C. jarred basil pesto sauce
1 C. shredded mozzarella cheese
3 large or pint of cherry tomatoes
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non stick spray.
Pour half of pesto sauce in bottom of pan and spread thin.
Add chicken tenders. Top with tomato slices.
Brush tomatoes with remaining pesto sauce.
Sprinkle with cheese. Cover with foil.
Bake covered in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Serve with a crusty bread and use sauce from pan for a bread dip.
