Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was good and I'll make it again with a couple of changes. This was good and I'll make it again with a couple of changes. The chicken itself needs seasoning so I added pepper, and garlic and onion powders. I did add extra pesto as well. The family actually liked the veggies better than the chicken and I think that's because each bite had enough pesto on it. So next time I will make it with smaller pieces of chicken.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I agree with the other posters about it being bland. I agree with the other posters about it being bland. I seen nothing spectacular about this and I won't be making it again. I personally didn't like the Pesto, my husband thought it was good so if I were to make it again I would season the chicken with pepper and garlic and bake it instead of frying it.
