Delicious. I would make it again. It was easy and simple.

It was delicious! Very easy to make. Make sure to cut the chicken that small, as it keeps it incredibly juicy. We had pasta as a side and it was perfect

I added sliced tomatoes on top of the chicken while it baked before sprinkling with mozzarella, and had cauliflower rice as a side. Incredibly easy and delicious meal!

Perfect. Couldn’t have been easier, everyone loved it. Served with angel hair pasta and steamed broccoli. Big hit. Definitely adding to the regular rotation.

We are always looking for different ways to prepare chicken. This was a quick and easy recipe. We used boneless chicken thighs because that is what we had and it still turned out great.

Great recipe! Easy to make. Make sure you properly season chicken so it isn’t bland. I used salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning for my chicken
delicious! would make again.

Super easy and delicious
Served with broccoli, cauliflower and carrot medley buttered and seasoned with Italian seasoning. Whole meal went over great...especially with the 2yo!

Easy recipe and my teenage boys loved it over rice. I used the pepper jack cheese that someone suggested in a review. Very good!

I've made this dish twice, and I really like it. When I take out the chicke from the oven, i pour out the water that the chicken had, that way, its not so watery. I love the pesto basil flavor.

Add cheese parmesan and garlic to really bring out all the flavors good overall

surprisingly the kiddos loved it. ages 7 r and 1. they asked for more! at first they were skeptical because of the color green. but one bite and they were amazed!

I seasoned the chicken more since a tiny bit of salt & pepper doesn’t really provide a lot of flavor. I added oregano, paprika, & something I can’t think of right now, no salt, & kept the black pepper. I even cooked some garlic within the chicken & added some rosemary on top of it.

My dish turned out really good! The pesto did come out more watery and I had to use more than listed but it still tasted great. The whole family loved it.

Great!! I didn't cover as I didn't have aluminum, but it still turned out delicious.
Amanda Tiberio 16 Aug 2017
Very tasty, and easy to make! I love cheese, so I added closer to a cup, and I don't regret that decision!
Hermann Buxmann 15 Aug 2017
This was very easy to make and tasted very nice. I added some onion to the mix. Needed longer cooking time at higher temperature though. The pesto that I used was a bit oily, otherwise very good!
