Baked Pesto Chicken

Fast, easy, and delicious.  I have a surplus of basil, so I made basil pesto and this recipe was a good way to use that.

Baked Pesto Chicken
from a recipe I found online at Skinnytaste

2 (8oz each) boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used chicken tenders)
salt and pepper
Basil Pesto
1 medium tomato, sliced thin
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese

Slice chicken breasts horizontally to create 4 thinner cutlets.  Season with salt and pepper.

Line a baking sheet with foil and place chicken on sheet.  Spread pesto over each piece.

Bake at 400º for 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.  Top with tomatoes, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese.   Bake for another 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
