Props go to my friend Megan for the combination of this stacked flavorful chicken. Oh my goodness, it is seriously fantastic. My mouth thanks her for inspiring this dish and for inspiring a love of food in my life. Whenever I go to a restaurant with her she orders and it is always the best they have to offer! This girl likes to read menus in her spare time people! She has for sure inspired my love for food. Thank you my friend!

Ingredients:

Parmesan shake & bake

3/4 c panko bread crumbs

2 lbs chicken

Pesto 

Sun dried tomatoes

Fresh mozzarella

Balsamic reduction sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Add 1 package shake & bake to bag that comes with it. Also add pankp bread crumbs and mix well. Trim chicken and cut to even thickness. Wash chicken and add wet chicken to the bag and shake. Place on foil lined cookie sheet. Cook for 18 min.

Take out of oven and check the status of the chicken. At this point you want the chicken just barely cooked. Top each chicken piece with pesto, sun dried tomatoes and slices of fresh mozzarella. Place back in the oven for a couple minutes until the cheese melts.

Plate the chicken and drizzle with balsamic reduction sauce. This should taste nothing short of AH - MAZING! You can serve with a side of your favorite veggie and a little pesto pasta if desired. Enjoy my friends!
