    Basil Pesto Chicken

    2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp italian seasoning
    2-4 tsp prepared basil pesto (either homemade or from the jar)
    1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    2-3 T olive oil
    Salt and pepper

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly salt and pepper each chicken breast. Sprinkle chicken breasts with Italian seasoning. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add garlic and cook 1-2 mins. Add chicken to the hot skillet. Sear on each side to add color as well as seal in the juices of the chicken. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish. Top each piece of chicken with 1-2 tsp of pesto, depending on the size of each chicken breast. Top with 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese each and place in the oven. Bake for about 25 mins or until juices run clear.
