4 Ingredient Pesto Chicken Bake is healthy, simple,delicious and requires just 5-minutes prep. Juicy chicken topped with fresh pesto, melty mozzarella and topped with vine ripened tomatoes.

Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 30 mins Total Time: 35 minutes Yield: 3 chicken breasts


  • 3 chicken breasts, organic recommended

  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced

  • 3 slices mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.

  2. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish.

  3. Use a spoon to cover chicken with pesto.

  4. Top each chicken breast with 1 slice of mozzarella cheese and 2 sliced tomatoes.

  5. Bake for 30 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Broil the chicken the final 2 minutes so that the cheese is bubbly and golden.

Do you prefer to cook at home or go out to eat?

Both actually. You can only eat out so much. Cooking at home and trying new recipes is fun when I can fit it in.

Is there an ingredient you are really enjoying cooking with at the moment?

I really enjoy pesto, artichokes, and spinach right now. Where do you get your recipes? Any favorite cookbooks?

Most of my recipes come from random google searches or family/friends. I would have to say that my favorite cookbook is the “little blue box on the counter”. It’s not really a cookbook but it has all of our favorite family recipes and recipes that have been passed down through the generations and collected to share with everyone.
