Delicious and super easy and quick to make!
Delish! I did sear the chicken breast a little first and it ended up perfectly tender and not even a little dry. Super easy, cheap and quick!

Love this recipe. I make gluten free pasta and mix a little pesto with it and it’s a full meal. My husband and 1 year old love it too
Great! I used fresh pasteo from Wholefoods
Very good! I used Classico brand pesto instead of homemade. It was a hit!

fantastic easy to make and very tasty. We had it with couscous and broccoli. Added a chicken stock, to the couscous then the sauce. Lovely.
Awesome! Easy, tasty, and quick to make! Would highly recommend broiling for 5 mins as the instructions ‘suggest’!
Absolutely delicious. Used Italian season chicken breast and then added the other ingredients from the recipe! Soooooooo sooooo yummy 😍😍😍

Super delicious and quick prep! Used store bought pesto instead of making it from scratch and added a ton of garlic cloves. This dish had a ton of flavor! paired it with Scalloped potatoes and red pepper Quinoa. UPDATE: 5/4/18...used boneless chicken thighs tonite. Soooooo much more flavor. whole family loves this dish.
