This meal is so hyper simple it’s almost not a recipe. And I am sure in some circles it ISN’T considered a recipe. But that’s fine…you call it what you want, I’ll just call it delicious.

The prep time for the chicken is literally minutes. And I created a short little video to show you just how easy!!

MY OTHER RECIPES

Certainly you can use a homemade pesto, if you’re feeling fancy, but I usually just grab a jar of my favorite store bought and call it a day. You can serve it on top of pasta or just a salad…

All you do is coat you chicken breasts in breadcrumbs.

Place them all in a baking dish. I overlapped mine a little…it’s ok.

Then just spoon and spread your pesto sauce on top.

Place a slice of provolone cheese on each chicken breast…

And bake it until the chicken is cooked and the cheese is melty. I like to use thin-sliced chicken for this recipe.
