I made this dish last night for the first time & we loved it! I think I’ve mentioned before how much I like pesto so of course I loved it! It was really simple to make & has great flavors! Remember that I’m only cooking for 2 so you may need to double, triple, or however much increase these recipes.

 

You Will Need:

-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

-2 large potatoes

-1 block of cream cheese

-2 teaspoons Parsley

-Dash of pepper

-1 Tablespoon of Pesto

-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (parmesan would be great too.)

 

Directions:

-Wash potatoes and poke holes in skin with a fork

-Place on baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until tender

-While potatoes are baking cut a deep hole in the chicken breasts, but not all the way through.

-In a small bowl mix together cream cheese, parsley, and pepper

-Spoon cream cheese mixture into the chicken breasts. (you will have left over cream cheese mix, you need this for the potatoes)

-Bake in oven chicken for 35 minutes.

-When potatoes are finished cut them in half lengthwise.

-Using a spoon carefully scoop out the potato filling into the bowl with the cream cheese mixture.

-Add the Tablespoon of Pesto & mash/mix until fluffy

-Spoon the filling back into the potato shells & sprinkle with shredded cheese.

-Bake for another 10 minutes.

-When chicken & potatoes are both finished baking, you’re done!
