Excellent! I sauteed spinach and mushrooms before adding in the chicken, which I cut into thin strips. I also added a can of petite diced garlic and olive oil tomatoes in at the end. This was definitely a restaurant quality meal! Read More

I thought this was ok. I was really excited about it bc of the reviews but thought the soup over powered the pesto flavor and almost left it bland. Read More

Delicious!!!! Great base recipe that I just added 2 more ingredients to - 1/2 cup frozen spinach (thawed) and 1/4 cup Kraft Parmesan, Romano, & Asiago cheese mix - this was a delicious recipe that is now a favorite! I had actually made it two nights before and let it in the fridge it was awesome and the chicken picked up so much flavor! Read More

My family & I loved this recipe. They raved about this dish for days after we had it. However I did a few things differently from the recipe: I made my own pesto and didn't QUITE use an entire 1/2 cup if it. I used spiral pasta instead of bowtie. I added white wine & extra virgin olive oil to the butter/margarine. I sprinkled the chicken with garlic powder pepper and poultry seasoning while I cooked it. I used bone-in chicken so I ended up having to bake mine at 350 for 30 mins. Read More

I already had some chicken flavored rice that I made yesterday so used that instead of the pasta.My pesto sauce is from Sam's Club & I used the Fat-Free soup & non-fat milk. Added a little extra garlic & topped w parm. cheese. A quick & easy meal that will satisfy my family. Read More

This was really, really good. The soup was overpowering but I added more pesto and that did the trick. Will skip the milk next time. Used leftover cooked chicken. Read More
