What you’ll need:

8 chicken bone-in thighs or breasts

Pesto

Grated cheese (any type that suits your fancy)

Assemble:

Place chicken, skin up (you can also use skinless chicken), in a well-buttered 9 x 13 pan. Smother with pesto:

Optional step: cover with Parmesan cheese:

Generously cover tomatoes with grated cheese (I used a mixture of Cheddar and Monterrey) and place in a 400° oven, uncovered:

Bake at 400° for 50-60 minutes if using bone-in chicken pieces or 40 minutes for boneless. Chicken is done when internal chicken temp reaches 165°.

Oh, momma! The cheese makes a crispy topping and the chicken is tender and flavorful.
