First you’re going to set the oven on 425 and let it heat while you are prepping your meal.
Next get your chicken breast and season it with lemon pepper seasoning on both sides.
Once the sides are seasoned, slit the sides and place in a baking dish.

Once settled in the baking dish, start stuffing the chicken with pesto in between the slits.

Next start stuffing the chicken with cheese.

After you stuff the chicken with pesto and mozzarella cheese, fold the slits over and spread a little more cheese on the top of the dish.

Slice up a tomato or two and place in the baking dish.
To finish off the dish, sprinkle salt & pepper all over and drizzle olive oil on the chicken.

Place the dish in the oven for approximately 15-20 minutes on 425. If you peek in the oven you’ll see the cheese and pesto bubbling together.

After the dish is ready, serve it up with a fresh salad and garlic bread. (I myself poured a glass of Moscato.)
