Quick and Elegant: Pesto-Olive Chicken

Oh yes, it's time for another recipe. This one is incredibly easy-- yet very classy.

Pesto-Olive Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 oz. each)
1/2 cup pesto (prepared or homemade)
2 jars (4 1/2 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
1 can (4 1/2 oz.) chopped ripe olives
1 cup shredded provolone cheese

Flatten chicken slightly. Place in a 9 x 13 baking pan. Spoon pesto over chicken, top with mushrooms and olives. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes (until chicken is fully cooked). Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Return pan to oven and bake 1-2 minutes longer until cheese melted.
Mmm! Tastes as fabulous as it smells.
