Ingredients
  • 1 -½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup basil pesto
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Slice boneless skinless chicken breasts in to 1/2-inch wide pieces. Place on an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet. Brush each piece with pesto and sprinkle Italian breadcrumbs over the top. Mist with olive oil cooking spray.

  • Break off the tough ends of the asparagus, and lay the stalks out on a second baking sheet. Mist with olive oil cooking spray, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Place both baking sheets in the oven at the same time, with the chicken on the middle rack and the asparagus on the upper rack. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the asparagus is tender but still crisp.
