Preheat Oven to 400 degrees, in an oven proof skillet add oil and heat on medium high. Season sliced Chicken breast with salt and pepper. Sear chicken on both sides by cooking in hot oil for 2-3 minutes and then flipping to repeat.
When both sides are browned, add a tablespoon of pesto and spread on top of each chicken breast, add mozzarella slices, and then 2-3 slices of sliced roma tomato. Pop chicken into preheated oven until the temp reaches 165 degrees. This will take 15-25 minutes (depending on how thick your chicken is)
