Ingredients

Per 9 oz chicken breast

  • 4.5 tbsp pesto sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive or canola oil
  • 1/2 juice lemon
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a heavy duty ziploc freezer bag. Add chicken breast(s) into the back and move it around instead of the bag once closed to coat the chicken in the marinade.

Marinate

  • If placing in the fridge, marinate 2-4 hours before baking. If freezing, place it into the freezer immediate.

To Bake

  • Let the chicken thaw in the ziploc bag inside the fridge overnight.
  • Bake at 425F for 25 minutes.

Instant Pot

  • From frozen: place into the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water (or broth) and pressure cook for 8-9 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken breast) and then Quick Release when done.
