Re: easy italian chicken bake---so good!!!

This is delish! Have made it several times - except I use chicken tenders, and I don't use the tomato slice. Just pesto and cheese. Also make my own pesto with the spinach and basil (until I get basil from the garden) but substitute walnuts for the pine nuts since those are soooo expensive!

You know--I rarely use pine nuts for pesto---just too darn pricey. I like the walnuts especially toasted first and have use almonds too. I think any type of chicken would be good with this recipe. I'm thinking a sun dried tom pesto instead of green pesto. Dang---I'm hungry!!!!

Re: easy italian chicken bake---so good!!!

I made this last night - very good! I had to sub sun dried tomatoes (in a jar) for the romas and used a little bit of Italian dressing. I used chicken tenders, because that's what I had. All in all, it is a keeper! Thanks wagirl!

There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do.

Thank you for posting this recipe!!!

I tried it and it was great! I will definitely make it again. The recipe calls for Roma tomatoes which I didn't have. Instead, I used a small can of diced tomatoes. It worked great and the chicken was very moist including the leftovers.
