Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
The kids ate this meal several days in a row, asking to have it again until I ran out. My husband was skeptical at first but love it, too. Super easy!
Our family loves this dish and my husband is a picky eater. He thinks a lot of chicken dishes are dull, but not this one. Nice and flavorful, easy to prepare and good for you.
I love this recipe. I make it all the time!
Can't taste the pesto
The chicken came out very moist and the dish was very good overall. However, this recipe won't satisfy a pesto craving.
Easy and kids loved it!!!!
So easy, no mess, quick prep and incredible response from two little girls that do not like to try anything NEW!!
