(SOURCE: GoodFood 101 One-pot dishes - Pizza Chicken Melts)
I had a very relaxing day cleaning the house, taking a walk, and working the crosstrainer! I had to make dinner for today and the next two days ahead, so I have decided to make something simple tonight to maintain my zen-like calm! So I made this yummy chicken and served it with a simple green salad and mashed potatoes.
2 chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil
50-100g grated cheese
4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tsp pesto sauce
salt and pepper
1. Preheat the grill to high. Place the chicken between 2 pastic wrap sheets and beat firmly with a rolling pin to flatten. Season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the chicken and cooking for 2 minutes on each side until golden.
2. While the chicken cooks, mix the cheese and tomatoes together. Transfer the chicken from the pan to an oven dish, spread each breast with a teaspoon of peston, then pile the cheese and tomatoes on top.
3. Put under the hot grill, until the cheese has melted.
