I’m giving this 5 stars more for the quickness of this recipe than the flavour it’s quick, easy and tastes pretty yummy. Will definitely make again but will add more veggies and I like more sauce. Great base recipe though!

I was not sure if my family would like Pesto but it was good and they said they liked it. I added 8oz of cream cheese as some suggested and I think it definitely needed it.

Loved it! Fiance went for seconds 😍
Hey 17 Dec 2018
It wasn’t creamy enough. The directions calls for4 ounces of cream cheese and 1/3 cup of pesto ignore that. Add the whole 8 ounces of cream cheese in the entire jar of pesto and added some milk to make it creamier. Also add more chicken broth to it than what it calls for. Make sure that you season the chicken breasts!!!

GF made it, to creamy not enough pesto flavor. bland in general.
Otto 13 Dec 2018

Absolutely amazing! Really simple to make. Received many complaints. Doubled the recipe to freeze some... I couldn’t be happier with it, I will defiantly cook it again! Two notes are to salt and pepper the chicken, and of course the pasta water. I added about 1/3, maybe 1/2 a cup of pasta water to the sauce. I found it needed some more salt after cooking and serving, but otherwise it was perfect.
Rock Criedout 3 Dec 2018
Fantastic! Will definitely make again.
Truong 28 Nov 2018
It tastes really good! I seasoned my chicken with italian seasoning and seasoning salt also! It was fast and easy!
Monica Chaves 27 Nov 2018
I didn’t actually put cream cheese and my basil pesto was basil and pesto mixed together but it turned out wonderful. My husband always makes lemon chicken for our pasta and I hate it but this made it a whole bunch better
Chris Darwin 27 Nov 2018
Super! Very creamy with the half and half! Loved every bite!
Sylvia Rozsa 8 Oct 2018

K 7 Oct 2017
Tasty and quick and easy
Shani Shane 15 Aug 2017
Very good recipe. Personally I prefer fresh veggies so I steamed fresh broccoli in a steamer above the pasta about half way through the pasta cooking. Everything else was the same.
Katelyn Alleson 21 Jul 2017
so yummy. added some extra chicken broth and some home grown cherry tomatoes and it made it even BETTER!
JB F. 13 Jul 2017
Super easy to make, creamy and tasters great Worthwhile considering a conch or small rigatoni pasta to combine with the sauce better
