Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright flavors that taste like summer I love caprese salad and grew up eating "hasselback" potatoes (sliced on top), so this recipe caught my eye. And it really was delicious. An easy, creative way to do chicken breasts (for the 500th time). The pre-bought pesto was pretty good, and the fresh basil and tomatoes give it a bright summery taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This. Is. Amazing. I got this recipe out of the 2017 Summer Magazine and made it last week. I am making it again this week. I am determined to get it to look as it does in the picture. My first try was ugly looking but delicious. I used shredded cheese and thin breasts. Clearly you must use the whole thick breast. Wow. The pesto and garlic mayo is amazing. My family loves this. I am making it weekly until i run out of the ingredients and no one seems to mind. I may try it on a rack inside the baking dish because mine is a little watery as well. do not use shredded cheese, use the kraft thin slices. Make it exactly as it says to and you will be a hero in your household. If I get it to look half way decent I may try it on guests. The flavor is dinner party material. Great job Kraft test kitchen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Caprese Chicken This was very easy to make and tasty. The only "problem" was there was about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the dish and I think all the cheese disappeared!! I used fresh mozarella thinking it would be a little step up from sliced but maybe that's why! I just don't know why there was so much liquid. It was still good and I will make again maybe try a different cheese.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent as is! My husband and I love this recipe and it looks just as beautiful as the magazine photo. I have usually done 1/2 the recipe as it is just the 2 of us and have used the toaster oven. Perfectly yummy! Will be using it again this evening for a small birthday dinner group. Never can remember whether I cover it or not?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for company! I recently tried this recipe and was extremely pleased. My husband loved it. Everything about it was very tasty. For added flavor I used roasted red peppers instead of the tomato. Yum!
