"I've made this a few times now, and I think overall it is a very good dish. I serve mine on top of wild rice, and with green veggies. It is extremly easy to and quick to make. I no longer use oil to c..." See moreook my chicken in, instead I actually use water which keeps the chicken very moist, and cuts a few more calories off of the meal."

I also added about 1/4 cup lemon ..." See morejuice to perk it up and set the green color. Hubby is not a big pesto fan, but he really enjoyed this, which says a lot-Thanks Philly!!"
