      This was a very nice way to serve chicken and as you say very easy you can't mess up. I also used a mexican blend of cheddar, as I had parmesan in my pesto which I had leftover's from another dish. I will make it again. The leftover paste that I had (as I only used half the chicken) I spead on toast and grilled it with a bit of tomato on top for supper it was great. Made for PAC Fall 09
