What doesn't pesto work with? You could rub it on my shoe and I would eat it. But add some it to chicken & bake it and you have this great easy chicken recipe you will want to share with everybody!

Ingredients

3
tablespoons pesto
4
chicken breasts halved
1
cup panko bread crumbs
1/2
fine dry bread crumbs
2
teaspoons paprika
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400° F. Lightly grease a baking pan large enough to hold the chicken in a single layer.
  • 2 Wash chicken breasts and pat dry. Gently pound the chicken between sheets of plastic wrap to even thickness.
  • 3 In a food processor, pulse the panko and dry bread crumbs with the paprika, salt, and pepper, until well combined.
  • 4 Rub each chicken breast with about 1 to 2 teaspoons of pesto, then press in the crumbs to thoroughly coat. Arrange the chicken in the baking pan and bake for about 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
