Caprese Chicken

in , by Kelly , April 16, 2019


  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)
  • 4 tbsp prepared pesto
  • 2 roma tomatoes, cut in 1/2" slices
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, cut in slices
  • Fresh basil


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F
  2. Lay the chicken breasts flat in a baking dish.  Spread 1 tbsp of pesto evenly on each chicken breast. Top with tomato slices and cheese.
  3. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through to an internal temperature of 165˚F
  4. Garnish with fresh basil and serve with your favorite sides.  Enjoy!

Note: I did carrots instead of onions and I made mashed potatoes


  • 2 lbs cube steak
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 onions
  • 10.5 oz can cream of celery soup
  • 1 dry package of Lipton Onion Soup mix


  • Cut cube steak into smaller pieces.
  • Add flour to ziplock bag.
  • Add steak one at a time to bag to flour meat.
  • Add oil to Instant Pot. Turn on Sauté setting.
  • Add cube steak in batches to Instant Pot. Cook on each side until browned and crispy.
  • Set cube steak aside. Deglaze bottom of Instant Pot with 3 tbs of the beef broth.
  • Add onions and cook them until tender.
  • Return cube steak on top of onions.
  • Mix remaining broth, cream of celery soup, and Lipton onion soup mix.
  • Add sauce mixture over the cube steak.
  • Cook on Manual High for 20 minutes.
  • Quick release pressure.
  • Turn off Instant Pot and rest for 5 minutes. (This will thicken the gravy.) Serve over rice or with mashed potatoes.
