• Preheat oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Combine Parmesan cheese, panko breadcrumbs (see ingredients) and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Set aside. • Place chicken breast on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, then season generously with salt. Turn to coat. Spread half the creamy pesto dressing over top of chicken. Spoon over panko-Parmesan mixture, gently pressing so it sticks. • Drizzle chicken with olive oil. Bake until crumb is golden and chicken is cooked through (when no longer pink inside), 14-18 minutes.
