This was very good. But did not have enough pesto flavor! I just made a batch of fresh pesto and this came in my daily dish the next day, so I thought "why not?" For all you reading the reviews and considering halving the amount of pesto, don't do it! Also, do not use Italian diced tomatoes. I'm a die-hard for their delicious flavor, but they will not make this dish the way it's intended!
I usually cook from a recipe, and then change things the way I feel I want to eat/taste (I do not tend to write reviews when I do.) Many of them end up the way a collective recipe would be from the people who suggest changes. But then you miss the point of the pesto. Yes, I'm passionate about it. I will choose any dish for the word. If you are like me, I would skip the recipe if you are hoping for pesto-deliciousness.
Other things. It didn't need 4C of cheese. 3 is plenty and cheaper (I'm not trying to make it healthy!) It doesn't need 6C of chicken. 3C still ensured plenty of meat (though I will contend that if you add all 6C then I suppose you want all 4C of cheese.) Finally, this does make a lot more than a 9x13 as written. With the only difference being 3C meat versus 6, it was completely overflowing.
