    Made this with Gotham pesto (best pesto I’ve had outside of Italy!) and fresh mozzarella. It was quick, easy and delicious. I served it with salad but next time I’ll probably make it with rice pilaf. There weren’t many leftovers but my husband said the last piece of chicken was excellent for lunch the next day!

    We made this for the family and everyone loved it! Paired it with Texas toast and still came out under 500 calories. I've been trying to add proteins to every meal and this worked out perfectly.

    Delicious!! I wouldn’t change anything, I used cherry tomatoes because we didn’t have tomatoes, served it with sour cream, avocado and home made tortilla chips.

    This was easy and delicious! Also very pretty and made the coworkers envious when I took leftovers to work. I used a ball of fresh mozzarella instead of shredded—Yum! By keeping portion sizes modest and serving with a large side of steamed broccoli, this fit nicely into my calorie budget.

    Used Classico brand pesto on top - tasted amazing. Chicken came out very tender. Put on top of rice pilaf. Perfect recipe - will make again!

    As many have stated, this meal is easy and tasteful. I first brined my chicken breasts which makes them juicier. Loved all the ingredients, but it was not what I expected. It was lacking something, so I doubt if I will make this again.

    I cut the chicken into bite size pieces and just kept an eye on them for timing. Change it up a little and you can use this recipe for other things too! Second time using this recipe and I will NEVER use another.
