Ingredients
  • 3 lbs chicken cutlets, breasts (1.36 kg)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 cup pesto (188 g/ 6.6 oz) - you can make your own pesto
  • 3 oz baby spinach (85 g)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (300 g/ 10.6 oz)
  • 13 oz fresh mozzarella (370 g)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (45 g/ 1.6 oz)
  • fresh basil, for garnish

Note: Using chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts will decrease the protein and increase the fat content per serving. If using skinless and boneless chicken thighs: 47 g protein, and 31 g fat.
