Chicken Pesto Bake

Whether you want to grill outside in the summer, or cook indoors in the oven, Chicken Pockets are great tasting and easy to prepare.

350 calories per pocket. This recipe makes 4 servings.

Begin with four sheets of 8x12 aluminum foil. Place one medium chicken breast, skinless, on each sheet in the center. Add in one plum tomato, sliced into quarters, with 1/4 zucchini in each pocket. Spread each chicken breast with 1-2 tablespoons of pesto.

Fold in each of the four corners of aluminum foil in to coverfood, while leaving a small opening for air.


Place on grill for 20-25 minutes, until chicken is tender and white.

Oven Directions: (Yes, you can enjoy this in the wintertime, too!) Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Cook pockets for 30 minutes, spread evenly on a pan.
Sprinkle with feta cheese, if desired (shown above). 
Seriously simple and sooo delicious - experiment with your own favorite meats, seasonings and vegetables to mix up this summer recipe!
