      This is so good and easy to prepare. I love the Zaar feature that you can click and the recipe adjusts for 2. I used my own frozen pesto and cheddar cheese(didn't have Colby).My husband raved about it.That means: save this recipe! I did let the rolls set in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before baking. You can serve this to company and look like a star. I am not sure of the picture but I posted it anyways. Thanks for sharing this one. Rita

      This was fabulous! I made this as written except that I used 4 large chicken breasts instead of six small ones. The sauce looks so elegant and looks as if you spent an hour creating it, who would know that you just mix two ingredients together to make it! My picky-eater daughter scarfed this, as we all did. Thanks Geema, this is going into the permanent file!
