Ingredients   [ For 4 to 5 people ]    [  Preparation time : 12 minute  –  Cooking time : 15 minutes  ]

For the Pesto

  • 1 cup raw shelled walnuts
  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2/3 cup light flavored olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp salt you can adjust to your taste
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast

For the Chicken:

  • 1.5 lbs organic boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • sea salt & pepper
  • 4 slices tomato
  • generous pinch Italian seasoning I used this one
  • generous pinch nutritional yeast

Preparation Method

  1. First, make the pesto while you preheat your oven to 400 F. You can also make the pesto the day before and store in the fridge to eliminate prep time.
  2. Add all of the pesto ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor and process/blend on high speed until a “paste” forms, stopping to scrape the sides and stir once or twice for even blending.
  3. Store the pesto in a covered container/jar in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  4. Place the chicken breasts in a well greased baking dish or cast iron skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Then, generously spread the pesto all over the chicken (I went VERY generous!) and save the rest for another recipe.
  6. Top each piece of chicken with 2 tomato slices and a generous pinch of nutritional yeast and Italian seasoning.
  7. Bake in the preheated 400 F oven for 25-30 minutes or until just cooked through.
  8. Slice chicken as desired and serve! Makes 4-6 servings.

Enjoy it!!
