Family dinners are something I grew up with thanks to my wonderful mamaw. Nearly every single day after school, we’d run down to her house with our backpacks on to see what was on the stove. In my adult life, dinners are still something I very much appreciate & love preparing as it reminds me of good memories from my youth. However, like most people, I’ve found this isn’t always an easy feat. Life gets busy. As a grad student who has also had 20 hours of practicum to complete weekly, plus homework, plus papers to write, PLUS studying for a comprehensive exam, finding the time to prepare food hasn’t always been readily available. As a result, I’ve come to appreciate quick & easy meals that still taste delicious!
Surfing Pinterest last week, I came across the following & tried it out last night-& OMG, was it delicious! Best of all, FOUR INGREDIENTS!!!!!!! It doesn’t get much easier than that!
What you need:
- Chicken breasts (as many as desired, we did 3 because that’s what we had in the freezer).
- Basil/Pesto spread
- Mozzarella cheese
Put 2 tablespoons spread on chicken, top with two tomato slices, then layer cheese. Bake for 50 minutes to an hour @ 400 degrees 😋🍛
I served it with 90 second microwavable rice & 5 minute microwavable brussels sprouts. Not the best options but hey, they’re quick!
