This was a wonderful recipe to make for myself or for others, including my mother and my boyfriend. Would there be anyway to bake this chicken alongside some pasta however? <<< From Mary, Kraft Kitchens Expert ~ It is not necessary to bake pasta alongside the chicken. While the chicken is in the oven, prepare pasta as directed on package directions, then toss with additional pesto. Chicken should be ready to come out of the oven at the same time. >>>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this recipe is so easy to make and it turned out to be very delicious! this recipe is so easy to make and it turned out to be very delicious!! my picky boyfriend was amazed by how good it was. i used less spicy brown mustard than what was required and added a little bit more mozzarella (if you like a lot of cheese). i love this recipe because it's very flexible and very easy to double or triple if you were to have a party. love love love it!

I had my doubts when preparing the pesto mixture and with the odor of the dijon emanating from the oven. However, it was very tasty and my boys, for whom I had harbored the doubts would dislike the meal, surprised me by requesting 2nds and 3rds! Thought I could use the mixture for stuffing the breasts the next time too!

My husband doesn't like Pesto either but he loved this recipe. I just made it for dinner tonight. I reccomend this recipe to anyone. If you don't like Pesto, please give it a try anyway. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to make and lots of flavor. Easy to make and lots of flavor. I didn't put as much dijon mustard as the recipe called for. Was a little leery of so much, but will probably do so next time. Flavors were good together. An easy dish to pair with numerous side dishes or just italian bread and side salad.

I didn't have any dijon mustard (plus I did not think the kids would go for that)so I added a small can of tomato sauce. I sauteed some sliced zucchini and yellow squash in olive oil and baked them with the chicken and pesto. It was delicious!!!
