Lemon Olive Oil + Peach Balsamic

Standard

This combination is so refreshing! Here we have changed up a traditional basil pesto to use the J. Olive Co. Lemon Olive Oil and a hint of sweetness with the J. Olive Co. Peach Balsamic to replace lemon juice. Check out our Basil Pesto Chicken recipe using this delish pesto.

Ingredients

  • Lemon-Basil Pesto
  • grape tomatoes, sliced
  • chicken breast
  • parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Depending on the thickness of your chicken breast, you can choose to split the chicken breast in halves like shown here. Also allows for quicker cooking time.
  3. Season raw chicken with a little salt and pepper.
  4. Smear 1 tbsp of pesto on top of chicken, grape tomatoes and a small sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes. Possibly longer if you have thicker chicken breast.
  6. If needed, broil on high for a few minutes to crispy up cheese.
