"Quick recipe that can be made with prepared gnocchi and pesto, plus chicken breast and fresh mozzarella. Very easy; so easy, I'm sure it borders on a non-recipe. You're really just combining ingredients. You can also experiment with adding other ingredients, like mushrooms or veggies. Anything that needs to be cooked can probably be added at the chicken stage. I did not add any onions or garlic, because the pesto I used already had both, but if your pesto does not, you can add those with the oil as well." — slocatelli

Made this last night and it was great! I think next time, I'll serve it over fettucine instead of the gnocchi since that's the what my fiance asked to try.
It was edible, heating the pesto absolutely spoiled its taste. Also, the mozzarella didn't add anything to the recipe but calories. I will not try it again.
I made this tonight for dinner. I was a little nervous about adding cheeses to the pesto. (I didn't have mozzarella so I used Colby Jack.) I gave it to my husband, who is picky about his gnocchi, and as soon as he took a bite he was hooked. Very fast, very easy. I will make this again.
Had this for diner a couple of nights ago & it was GREAT, Thank you for sharing :)
Made this last night and loved it. Very simple quick weekday meal with some added steamed vegetables.
I followed the recipe and was happy with how quick and easy this was. My husband loved it!
Followed the recipe but instead of the chicken added Baby Portabella mushrooms, excellent!
Yum! This is so simple, especially if you forget to read the recipe and think it calls for already cooked chicken. Which is, of course, what I did, but that made it even faster. Very delicious, easy, and a great idea. Thanks for the recipe!
