Step 1Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cut slashes into the chicken breasts widthways, about 2cm apart. Go about two-thirds through the chicken – you don’t want to cut all the way.
Step 2Add a thin slice of mozzarella, a thin slice of tomato and a basil leaf to each cut and add to a baking tray. Season and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the cheese has melted. Drizzle over the pesto and a few more basil leaves. Serve with a green salad and pasta or potatoes.
