    I made it for my wife for our 9 year Anniversary and she loved it.

    SO good! I took read someone else’s review to also season the chicken with Italian seasoning (I used the mrs.dash salt-free) and that was NOT a mistake. So good and easy, will definitely be making again!

    The family loved the chicken but I also seasoned it with Italian herbs which really kicked it up a notch! Keeping this recipe to use again!

    Made this with Gotham pesto (best pesto I’ve had outside of Italy!) and fresh mozzarella. It was quick, easy and delicious. I served it with salad but next time I’ll probably make it with rice pilaf. There weren’t many leftovers but my husband said the last piece of chicken was excellent for lunch the next day!

    We made this for the family and everyone loved it! Paired it with Texas toast and still came out under 500 calories. I've been trying to add proteins to every meal and this worked out perfectly.

    Delicious!! I wouldn’t change anything, I used cherry tomatoes because we didn’t have tomatoes, served it with sour cream, avocado and home made tortilla chips.

    This was easy and delicious! Also very pretty and made the coworkers envious when I took leftovers to work. I used a ball of fresh mozzarella instead of shredded—Yum! By keeping portion sizes modest and serving with a large side of steamed broccoli, this fit nicely into my calorie budget.

    I loved it! I may try it with salmon next time. Thanks
    Really yummy change up from our normal plain baked chicken. Forgot the tomatoes! But I know they will make this recipe even better when I make it next time!

    As many have stated, this meal is easy and tasteful. I first brined my chicken breasts which makes them juicier. Loved all the ingredients, but it was not what I expected. It was lacking something, so I doubt if I will make this again.
