A quick and easy chicken recipe, with pesto and tomatoes.
Keywords: tomato pesto chicken
If you’re looking for a quick and easy dinner idea, this Tomato Pesto Chicken is it. All you have to do is brown the chicken, then bake it in a pan with tomatoes, pesto, and parmesan cheese. It pairs really well with rice, pasta, or potatoes and a side of greens.
Browning the chicken before baking it gives the chicken a lot more flavour. The intention is not to fully cook the chicken before baking it (that would just dry it out), but to brown the outside of the chicken in a hot, greased pan to increase the flavour and improve the texture. It creates a nice browned outside and a juicy, tender inside.
