Step 1

Mix the pesto or what ever spice you like into the mayonnaise.

Step 2

Coat the chicken breasts all over with the mayonnaise mixture.

Step 3

Bake at 350 F on tin foil for easy clean-up in a pan. Bake until done. If you poke it with a fork, clear juice should come out. If it is pinkish you need to cook it longer.

This is great using curry spices, greek spices or even a sage mixture.
