Pesto Chicken

Thanksgiving is next week. Then the whirlwind of December kicks in: holiday concerts at school,  trimming the tree, fighting the crowds to finish your shopping, Christmas pageants... The list goes on and on.

With all this hustle coming up, I thought you'd appreciate a super-simple dinner idea. I know I did.

Pesto Chicken
Serves: 2

2 chicken breasts
2-4 tablespoons prepared pesto

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken in a baking dish and schmear each chicken breast with 1-2 tablespoons pesto, depending on how pesto-y you like things.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.

P.S. Pesto Chicken is fabulous served with pasta. Use your favorite alfredo sauce or more of the pesto.


  1. Yep, this looks amazing. Love that it is one pan and two ingredients. I would make this every week not just before Thanksgiving.

  2. This time of the year who doesn't love having a little something simple in their lives?!
