This was ok. Seasoned the chicken prior to cooking but still seemed a little bland. Would not use chicken broth again as it was pretty salty.

This sauce is awesome, Philly actually has a similar recipe for salmon. I used white wine instead of chicken broth, it turned out great!

This was the best meal that I've cooked so far. I highly recommend making this for dinner. I melted mozzarella on the chicken before I poured the pesto sauce and it made it even better.

Delish! :) I doubled the sauce & added extra pesto because I love it. Try this with Sundried Tomato Pesto!

Wow! This tasted even better than I expected it to! I wouldn't change a thing.
