Chicken in Spinach Pesto

Remember last week's quick n easy spinach pesto? This is what I used it for. I needed to make something quick and tasty and all I did was to throw in some chicken breast, salted and peppered in an oiled baking dish, smeared them with presto, top it off with some grated mozzarella cheese and baked at 400° F for about 25 minutes. And yes, don’t forget to cover the baking dish with the aluminum foil for the first 20 minutes. This speeds up cooking of the chicken as well as it prevents the cheese from burning. And the last 5 minutes, take off the foil cover, let the cheese bubble and brown up and then enjoy the hot and oh so tasty chicken on a sandwich or with your choice of pasta!
