Chicken Doesn't have to be Boring

Grilled to Perfection, Topped with Mozzarella, Tomato and Pesto

Peace is achieved by a perfect serving of chicken.

I don't know what it is about mozzarella and pesto, but it's delicious. This chicken recipe is so moist and expressive in flavour. Would recommend to impress someone you have over for dinner with this easy and healthy recipe.
