Pesto Chicken

I saw this recipe the other day on Get In My Belly’s FB page and it is so easy but delicious!!
What you need:
1 lb boneless skinless chicken tenders (I just cut up three boneless skinless chicken breasts)
3.5 oz basil pesto
3 roma tomatoes sliced (I used cherry tomatoes sliced cause that’s all I had on hand)
8 oz fresh mozzarella sliced
Sprinkling of salt
Sprinkling of pepper
Sprinkling of shredded parmesan
Sprinkling of Italian seasoning
Set your oven at 400 degrees and lightly coat a baking dish with pam or whatever you use. I use olive oil spray.
Then it is literally a layering game. Lay the chicken in the pan, spread basil pesto on top of each tender, then put tomatoes on top of that, Sprinkle top of tomatoes with salt and pepper, then layer on the mozzarella, then sprinkle all of it with shredded parm and italian seasoning.
Pop it in the oven for 40 minutes and voila the perfect chicken to serve with garlic bread, pasta, or to place on top of a salad.
