Ingredients

  • 1 pound green beans fresh, ends trimmed
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons pesto
  • 4 mozzarella cheese slices fat-free (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • In a bowl, toss together the green beans, tomatoes, half the olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or just until the beans and tomatoes begin to blister and brown.
  • Meanwhile, pat the chicken breast dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Add the chicken to the hot pan, and cook for about 5 minutes or until browned. Turn over the chicken and spread the pesto (dividing evenly between all pieces) on the browned side of the chicken. Cook an additional 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • If using the mozzerella slices, place on top of the fully cooked chicken. If needed, place a lid over top of the skillet to melt the cheese. Serve chicken along side the roasted beans and tomatoes.
