Pesto Chicken:

4 chicken breasts
2-3 Tablespoons pesto
4 large slices of mozzarella (sp?) cheese

Preheat oven to 400. In a baking dish, place 4 chicken breasts. Cover with
pesto, and top with cheese. Cover
with tin foil.

Bake at 400 for 45 minutes - 1 hour (until no blood shows when you cut into the
chicken). Uncover chicken after 35 minutes.

*mixing sundried tomato with the pesto before applying to the chicken is nice,
too.

Hope this helps,
Paula
