Quick Chicken with Roasted Red Peppers, Basil & Mozzarella

A few weeks ago I pulled out chicken on a Tuesday & by Thursday I was still trying to figure out what to do with it.   Everything I wanted to do, I was missing some key ingredient.
  • Peanut Butter, No Jelly
  • Cereal, No Milk
  • Ham, No Burger
I know you feel my pain. We've all been there. 
Time for fridge inventory!

Besides the already thawed out chicken, I found
* Mozzarella
* Basil 
* Roasted Red Peppers
You will also need:
* Italian Seasoning
* Olive Oil

First I cooked the Chicken
I put some Olive Oil in the pan
Seasoned the Chicken with Italian Seasoning
Cook on Medium heat for about 10 minutes or until cooked
(Mine were cut pretty thin so it didn't take long)

I put the cooked chicken on a cookie sheet
Then put the Roasted Red Peppers on

Next I put on the Basil, but only on 3 pieces.  
My son is not a fan of Basil, AKA-Green Feathers

Finally I top it with Mozzarella
I would have preferred fresh, but all I had was shredded

Cook at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted
Wah La!

I served it with a side of 
Butter Garlic Pesto Angel Hair pasta

The meal probably took about 30-40 minues
Perfect meal for those hectic days
When you are doing the most.

Enjoy & have a great weekend!
