Step 1

Wash chicken and dry with a paper towel. Slice chicken breast horizontally to create 4 thinner cutlets. Season lightly with salt and fresh pepper.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line baking sheet with foil or parchment if desired for easy clean-up.

Step 3

Place the chicken on prepared baking sheet. Spread about 1 teaspoon of pesto over each piece of chicken.

Step 4

Bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove from oven; top with tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Step 5

To Grill: Grill chicken over medium flame on both sides until cooked through in the center.  Lower flame, top chicken with pesto, tomatoes and cheese, and close grill until cheese melts.
