Chicken Pesto

prepared pesto
8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
breadcrumbs (I added my favorite italian spices)
4 slices provolone cheese, cut in half
1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms

1 Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2 Spray rectangular dish (9 by 12 inch) with non-stick spray.
3 Moisten chicken with water, shake off excess, and coat complete with bread crumbs.
4 Place chicken in baking dish.
5 Spread pesto sauce evenly over chicken breasts.
6 Cover each breast with ½ slice of provolone or mozzer. cheese.
7 Spread mushrooms over cheese.
8 Bake in oven for 45- 50 minutes.
9 Serve with pasta.
*I waited until about 10 minutes prior to the chicken being done to add the mushrooms and cheese to avoid the cheese being overcooked.
I served with a white sauce pasta, asparagus (boiled then added parm. cheese), and rhodes roles because they are so easy and taste like you baked fresh roles. This recipe was without a doubt one of the easiest ones for how good the flavor is. You are going to love it! Will someone please upload a delicious recipe for me to try? Love you girls.
