Caprese Chicken Bake on a bed of baby spinach is a quick and healthy meal. You can make it in one baking dish or put them in individual baking trays.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings


1Preheat the oven to 350° F.

2Put a handful of spinach on the bottom of the baking dish.

3Place chicken breasts on top of the spinach.

4Use a spoon to cover chicken with pesto.

5Top each chicken breast with 1 slice of mozzarella cheese and sliced tomatoes.

6Bake for 30 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Broil the chicken the final 2 minutes so that the cheese is bubbly and golden.

7Add fresh basil to the top before serving.


8 ounces baby spinach

4 chicken breasts

4 Tablespoons pesto

2 medium tomatoes, sliced

4 slices mozzarella cheese, or grated

fresh basil, chiffonade

Easy, delicious and pretty to look at. I used the mustard greens that I had on hand. Worked out great.
