Pecan-Mozzarella Chicken with Basil Pesto

Description:

Chicken breasts are coated with a tangy Dijon and then dipped in chopped pecans.  Simply pop them in the oven, then top with shredded mozzarella cheese and a tasty basil pesto.  Oven – 25 minutes if thawed, 30 minutes if frozen.

Cooking Instructions

Preparation:  Thaw completely.  If chicken is frozen or partially frozen, defrost in microwave before cooking.  Do not over-microwave, or chicken will become tough.

 

Cooking Instructions:  Preheat oven to 350F.  Spray baking sheet with non-stick coating.  Remove chicken from bag and discard bag.  Place chicken on baking sheet and top chicken breasts evenly with pecan topping.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until chicken is done (165F on instant read thermometer).  Top chicken evenly with mozzarella cheese and return to oven for 1-2 minutes to melt cheese.  Top each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of room-temperature basil pesto, and serve.  Cooking times may vary due to differences in ovens.
