PREPARATION
1.
Preheat the oven to 375F.
2.
Lightly coat the bottom of a baking dish with olive oil.

Place the chicken breasts in the baking dish. Spread 1 tbsp of pesto over each one, making sure to cover the whole chicken breast. May need more if the chicken breast is large.

Add the diced pepper and the tomatoes (whole) to the pan.

Place in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink on the inside and is at least 165F on the inside.
6.
Remove from the oven, sprinkle the cheese evenly over each chicken breast, and place back in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
7.
Serve with a spoonful of the wilted tomatoes and bell peppers.
