Easy and delicious! I made a few changes based on what I had (and what I didn't.) I used dried basil instead of pre-made pesto and when I browned the chicken breasts i put garlic in with the olive oil. I also didn't have the broccoli so I left those out. A nice and simple dish. Enjoy!

I think I would have enjoyed this recipe more with less pesto. The creamy tomato sauce on it's own would have been was delicious.

This recipe was very good. I put a little Parmesan cheese on top and it made it better. I noticed that instead of eating it straight from the stove top that it was better to let it sit for a few minutes first. It made the sauce stick a little better and thicken up a bit. Very good, and I will make it again!
