Pesto Pasta with Chicken

"Easy and delicious pasta with chicken. Serve with crusty bread and salad for a quick dinner. Use as much or as little pesto sauce as you like. Using homemade pesto will taste even better, but it adds to prep time. Enjoy!"

I always want to rate the recipe as it is presented. I believe the amount of pesto sauce should be doubled/tripled. With that being said, I made my own pesto sauce and it was wonderful. Great...

I have often made a different pesto/pasta/chicken recipe from this site and enjoyed it. I thought that I would try this out to compare. I think it beat out the competition because my husband wen...

Instead of using 'additional' olive oil, I used the olive oil marinating the sun-dried tomatoes to cooked the chicken in. It had all sorts of spices, including garlic and oregano...yummy! Also t...

This was a winner in our house! The whole family loved it! I did use whole wheat pasta and I marinated the chicken in a little Italian dressing and Pesto Vinagrette dressing. I also did not u...
