This is a good base recipe. I followed other reviewers suggestions. I added the following: 4T of pesto (instead of 2), 1 t minced garlic & 1 t white wine to the pesto mix. I layered in with the chicken: 1/2 a chopped onion, 1/2 a roasted pepper (chopped), mushrooms. Amazing!!!! Don't forget to sprinkle the chicken breasts with some salt and pepper. Next time I'm thinking I'll add some grilled asparagus (anything to get more veggies in our diet!) Thanks for the excellent starting point!
OK, so this time I broke my own rule -- which is to always make the recipe as-is the first time through (how else are ya gonna' know, right?) I followed the other reviewers' suggestions, adding minced garlic, diced onions, and some fresh sliced mushrooms, along with lots more pesto & a little white wine. The results were great! My conclusion is that this is a great base recipe, and has lots of room for versitility. We will definitely keep this as a regular item on our menu.
5 stars with some small changes. After reading the reviews I added more pesto. I make a light pesto in the summer (less than half of the regular oil) and freeze it, used about 6 cubes. I also salt/pepper'd the chicken prior to putting it in the baking dish. Finally, I added some garlic and diced sun-dried tomatoes to the mixture. It came out so good my fiance complimented the recipe about 4 times while we were eating! Delicious!
What I like about this recipe is there are so few ingredients. I usually have to log onto my computer to pull up recipes but this one, I remembered right off hand! I used much more pesto then called for (or in my case 'to taste') and added a pinch of seasoned salt to the chicken. Instead of putting the ingredients on top, I split the chicken breasts in have and stuff them. Also added shredded mozzerella, mushrooms, and onions. We at with a side of mashed potatoes. Very good!
Easy, delicious and fast.
I was really tired when I searched for something to make for dinner. This recipe looked simple and I had the ingredients. Well, this is the 2nd time I've made it this week. It's a keeper. I basically made as written the first time and the 2nd time I added chopped garlic and then at the end, a bit of feta cheese on top. Both times I served it with jasmine rice. The next time I make it I will add pine nuts. It works well as written but also is fun to add variations. This is a great weeknight meal but I will serve this for company. One of my favorite recipes on this site.
We tried this tonight and enjoyed it. Like many others I seasoned the chicken breasts with sea salt & pepper. I also followed the advice of many reviewers who suggested adding a few cloves of minced garlic about a 1/4 cup diced onions a little white wine and more pesto than the original recipe called for. It turned out very moist and flavorful. It was a nice change for boneless chicken breasts. I served it with oven roasted fresh beets and carrots. Thanks!
