    So I cut the chicken breast in half and pounded them semi flat. I then wrapped the pesto mixture in the chicken & wrapped them w/ butcher twine. I used 1 tsp of garlic salt, 1 tsp of thyme, 1 tsp of basil, 1 tsp of oregano, 1 tsp of papirka & pepper to taste mixed in 3 tblspn olive oil for marinade. - 4/24/12

  • Not as good as I had hoped, based on the reviews, just ok. I did add a little 'sauce' to it (and I baked it instead of grilling) as one of the reviewers suggested for a marinade and that helped the flavor a lot. We found it just a bit bland. Okay for a new menu, but not one to repeat. - 10/1/13

  • My husband and I love it and he always asks me to make it. Not a heavy meal. I put a little bit of grated parmesan cheese on top and I bake it instead at 350 for about 25 minutes - 2/26/13

  • I think maybe I did this wrong?! Mine was kind of ok, next time i might use a little less pesto. I started out using a grillpan, buit couldnt really flip them over because all of teh stuffing would have come out. So i swapped to putting them under the grill in my oven - 6/30/10
