      This has many ingredients that my family loves. I was excited to try it. The directions are very well written now. For my family they loved this. For me the taste of blue cheese overwhelmed the other flavors I was wanting to taste like the pesto, tomato, cheddar cheese. If you are making this recipe and aren't sure if you want a lot of blue cheese flavor, I would cut the bleu cheese in half. Made for PRMR

      You must have re-written the recipe, because I didn't find the directions at all confusing. I do not care for blue cheese (although I'm sure it would have had a bolder flavour) so subbed some feta instead. I also admit increasing the bake time to 40 min., as I wasn't all that convinced the raw chicken would have been cooked all the way through in 30 min. We enjoyed this immensely. :)

      Although the end result was extremely tasty, largely due to the pesto and sour cream, the instructions were so confusing that I'm struggling to even remember all the adjustments I made while making this. Many instructions were split between several steps which made them confusing to understand, and I found I had to keep re-reading them. Milk didn't feature in the ingredients list but appeared in the directions and since I didn't have any on hand I decided to use some yoghurt. There was mention of 3 tablespoons of butter divided, then the directions specified melting 3 tablespoons of butter. Sorry to rate this so low, wicked cook, but this recipe really needs some re-writing so that it's easier to follow. It's certainly potentially a really good recipe. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
