Baked Chicken Parmesan

I like to think this is healthier than an original Parmesan chicken, but even if it's not, it is a lot quicker!

3-4 chicken breasts
pesto (I like Costco's)
Mozzarella cheese
Marinara sauce (I like to add a small can of diced tomatos)
salt/pepper/garlic powder

*Pound out chicken breasts between plastic wrap until 1/4 of an inch thick. Spread pesto (generously) on half of chicken. Slice or shred some Mozzarella on pesto. Fold over chicken and secure with a toothpick. Put some marinara sauce in the bottom of a baking dish. Place chicken on top. Season with salt/pepper/garlic powder. Top with more marinara and more cheese. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350.
