This time of year is so busy! Occasionally I'll spend some extra time in the kitchen making a more detailed and time consuming meal but most often my go-to recipes are like this Quick and Easy Italian Chicken.  What mom doesn't love quick and easy???

This recipe doesn't have measurements (which I love) so you can adjust it to fit your specific families needs.  Only four ingredients are required so this is also an inexpensive meal as well as an quick-clean meal because it's all in one pan!  Less dishes to wash?  Yes, please!

If you are a fan of pesto then you'll be sure to love this dish.  The juices from the pesto and tomatoes help keep the chicken moist and if you love basil like I do then I'd recommend getting some fresh basil to sprinkle on top.  I love how it beautifully enhances the chicken.

Most of the time I'll throw together a side salad and add some crusty bread to this meal.  Or I'll serve on top of rice and add some kind of veggie.  The side-dish possibilities really are endless with this Italian Chicken.
