      Omg! This recipe is amazing! I've made it 3 times, forgot to come back and review. It was perfect! I made it 2 nights back to back because my husband couldn't get enough of it :) ... Trust me, says a lot since he's a very picky eater! My 5 year old loved it as well.
      Also, I used pepper jack cheese slices instead.

      Very good. A little different way of serving plain old chicken. Red sauce added some nice flavor and made it taste like chicken parmesan. The prep. seemed a little time consuming and it was difficult to transfer from prep area to baking pan, it started to fall apart. I would recommend assembling each one in the baking pan.

      These were easy and lovely. I cut my chicken pieces up small and just mixed them in with the pesto. I used grated mozzarella and didn't need quite 8 oz. Thanks for posting!
