Number of Servings: 6


    6 ounce jar pesto( mezzetta)
    3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 425. If the breasts you’re using are very thick, you may want to pound them flatter first – I like to do so between 2 sheest of wax paper. Lay breasts in baking dish. Spread a thick layer of pesto on top of each breast, then press the pecans gently into the pesto, covering each breast as completely as you can.

Cover baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes covered, then 15 minutes uncovered (otherwise pecans may get too well-done).
