A delicious dinner recipe, that can be prepped ahead of time! Fresh and zesty, this Baked Margherita Chicken is a crowd pleaser!
It’s the weekly installment of “Confessions with Shugary Sweets” today!
Seriously guys, I’m not sure why I feel compelled to share some of these things with you, but here goes.
Hi, my name is Aimee, and I’m obsessed with frozen margherita pizzas. Like, the cheaper the better, frozen pizzas.
In my healthier eating 2015 plan, it occurred to me that pizza for lunch probably isn’t the best option (I’m not going to comment though on the cheesecake bars, haha). So, why not make my favorite pizza for dinner? But with no crust, you know, to save some carbs!?!
I did overcompensate the “no crust” by adding plenty of cheese. I used sliced mozzarella, but shredded would work fine too!
The best part of this dinner (well, besides the fact that it tastes AMAZING), is that you can prep it ahead of time!
I’ve mentioned (a million times probably) that I love getting my dinners prepped early in the day. If I’m not using a slow cooker, then I like meals that can be made in advance.
How to make Baked Margherita Chicken
Today’s recipe is the perfect meal. I placed the large boneless, skinless chicken breasts into a 13×9 baking dish.
I whipped up a quick tomato basil topping and dumped that over the chicken (you could use homemade bruschetta too).
Cover the dish with foil and stick it in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook. Bake covered.
Then remove the foil, top with cheese and bake until melty! I served ours with a nice big salad, but if you feel you want the carbs, serve it on top of some angel hair pasta!
