I love pesto sauce, especially with chicken! This simple crispy baked chicken recipe is perfect for any meal. Pair the chicken with some rice or roasted asparagus and your family will be impressed. My family loves this easy dinner idea!
Mixing two of my favorite ingredients together is delicious! Just a few spoonfuls of pesto, cream cheese and cracked pepper adds a fresh and creamy flavor to the chicken. It also helps keep the chicken moist while baking.
After spreading the cream cheese and pesto mixture on the chicken breasts, I like to roll my chicken, then dip into breadcrumbs and bake.
Asparagus is wonderful drizzled in olive oil and tossed in sea salt and cracked pepper. Roast it in the oven at the same time your chicken is cooking for a perfect meal.
If you have picky kids like me, just make the chicken with no pesto and cream cheese sauce. Your picky eaters will be happy to eat fancy chicken nuggets.
Enjoy this recipe and if you have more great chicken recipe ideas, let me know in the comments. Thanks!
