Chicken Pesto Bake Recipe – 3 Smart Points

Chicken Pesto Bake

Here’s another easy and delicious way to dress up chicken breasts! In the Chicken Pesto Bake recipe, the chicken breasts are first topped with flavorful pesto sauce, then fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. It’s literally, just a handful of ingredients, but it delivers quite a tasty dish. I usually just buy a jar of prepared pesto sauce for this, but you can also make your own, if preferred. But at just 3 Smart Points per serving, this simple Weight Watchers chicken recipe offers a great way to indulge in wonderful flavors, while still keeping the Points low. It’s also packed with protein and extremely low carb. If you have the extra Points to spare, try this on some fresh Italian bread and serve as a sandwich. I usually like to pair this dish with a fresh side salad or some steamed veggies for a complete meal. Enjoy!
