  • I loved it! It was so easy to make ( only a few ingredients! ) and tasted great! I also used the jar of Classico basil pesto. This is going to be something I make regularly from now on. Yum! - 5/24/16

  • Great recipe. I make little slits on the chicken for better absorption of flavor. I tried it in wraps too and it it awesome ! - 9/7/13

  • This is a great recipe to break down for one person. Also, if I slice the chicken I find I can use about half the pesto and lose none of the flavor - which means more pesto for later dishes! - 1/23/13

  • This was really good, but don't use a really large piece of chicken - 8/13/12
