Frantoio Bianco Pesto Chicken

(Serves 4)

What you’ll need:

Extra basil leaves to garnish!


  • Preheat your oven to 190ºC.
  • Mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan, pesto, parsley together and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Mix tomatoes, water, basil and garlic thoroughly in a small bowl. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Brush a shallow ovenproof dish with olive oil. Place the chicken breasts in the dish and then pour the tomato mix round them so the chicken breasts sit just above the tomato mix.
  • Cover the chicken breasts with a generous layer of the crumb mix.
  • Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the crumb is golden.
  • Serve with buttered pasta and a green salad. 

Buon Appetito!
