Author's Notes

If using the oven, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place chicken breasts in a baking dish and bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

Store the leftover chicken in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat for a few minutes in the microwave, oven, or air fryer until warm.

Step 1
Marinate the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (4) in Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) , Lemon (1/2) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Salt (to taste) , and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) , while you prep the rest of the ingredients.
Step 2
If using the air fryer, preheat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Once preheated, add the chicken to the air fryer basket and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Step 3
Meanwhile, make the pesto sauce by combining Fresh Basil (1 cup) , Fresh Spinach (1 cup) , Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1/2 cup) , Lemon (1/2) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Salt (to taste) , and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) in a blender or food processor and pulse until the mixture is smooth.
Step 4
Remove the chicken from the air fryer or oven and top each breast with 2 slices of Vine-Ripened Tomato (1) and 2 slices of Mozzarella Cheese (2 cups) .
Step 5
Place the chicken back in the air fryer or oven and cook for an additional 8-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through (internal temperature should read 165 degrees F (70 degrees C).
Step 6
Top the chicken breasts with about 2 Tbsp of pesto sauce. Serve immediately and enjoy!
