I loved this SIMPLE recipe! I did saute the chicken first and then covered with pesto, tomatoes, cheese and baked. I will definitely make this again.

Thanks for the recipe, it was really easy and a good dinner overall. Maybe I'm dumb, but I read "baking sheet" and used a baking sheet with no rims, and the juice and the oil went all over the inside of the oven, so I wish I had used a Pyrex or one of the other pans I own. I think "sheet" made this amateur go awry! <br/><br/>My boyfriend does not like tomatoes, so I subbed roasted red pepper out on his pieces. He loved it!

This smelled amazing. My family did not care for the tomatoes on top. Also I was expecting more flavor. Could be because I used store bought pesto. Next time I will make homemade pesto.

Made this with P90x Pesto so less fat. I added 1 T of olive oil in the pan. I also only had string light cheese to top it with. Still Delicious.

This is a really flavorful and easy recipe! It was my husband's first experience with pesto. He's in love. Thank you for posting.

I left it in the oven long enough for the cheese to brown. mmmmmm. I also baked the chicken on a rack, to avoid an accumulation of olive oil. Very good!

Very quick and easy to prepare as a week night meal. My husband and I enjoyed this sooo much and our picky children even ate theire including the tomato! I served it with some penne pasta and alfredo sauce and steamed broccoli and we felt like we were dining out it was so delicious! Thanks for the simple easy recipe :)
