I am a busy working mom of two. One of my children is very picky about her food. I was sceptecal about this recipe, but i thought I would try it because, I know one meat she does like is chicken. She loves it and can't wait to have it again. I thought the pesto and mozzerella cheese was a nice change from just the plan old shake n bake mix, and it tastes really good. My family really liked it.

i made this recipe with pork (mistake) but it turned out very good.

Really simple and tasty.. an interesting alternative to chicken parmesan. The whole family enjoyed it, and it's normally pretty difficult for me to get my kids to eat meat.

10/09/2008

Excellent, my children ages 10 and 13 loved this recipe.

This was very tasty (and easy!). Our daughter made a wrap for lunch the next day with the left-overs and said it was delicious.

12/01/2007

After I tried this recipe, I had some left over spaghetti sauce, and instead of the pesto I used the spag. sauce, and it was delicious.

I've made this recipe many times prior to seeing it on line. I do, however, use my own pesto sauce, and often serve it with salas on the side and couscous. Very tasty! Cindy

11/23/2007

Yes, made the Pesto Chicken, with legs/thighs. I used fatfree Italian and I was glad I had doubled the servings as it was just as good as leftover. It's definitely a keeper recipe.

11/14/2007

It was very moist and delicious

11/14/2007

Excellent. I didn't have mozzarella so I substituted Monterrey Jack, and it added that little bit of zing. Delicious!

11/14/2007

I tried your Crispy Baked Pesto Chicken. It was delicious and a great dinner for 2. I just halved the recipe, and made the same thing fresh the next night. Some of the things the other readers tried with it sound good too. I always make the recipe the way it's presented first, then make changes if necessary. Your products are great and I usually have a cupboard full. Right now I think I have about 6 bottles of dressing. Thanks Kraft.

11/14/2007

A nice change up from Shake and Bake.. added some pezazzzzz.

11/14/2007

my family liked this new recipe, as we eat allot of chicken it's nice to have a new way to serve it.

11/14/2007

fabulous change - would be better if Kraft made a sodium reduced shake n bake. It was wonderful, but the salt is a little overpowering. The whole family liked it.

11/14/2007

We loved this! I used skinless chicken legs along with the breasts and dipped them in Asian Sesame dressing before the Shake N Bake. John

11/14/2007

Very yummy and easy to make. My kids loved it too!

11/14/2007

Sooooooooooooooooooo easy yet Soooooooo yummy

11/13/2007

Before I added the pesto I spread the chicken with herb and garlic cream cheese first. It was really good. I will try regular cream cheese next time.

11/13/2007

It was one of the best recipes i've done.

11/13/2007

This dish was so tasty...I would serve it for company in a heart beat! I marinated the chicken overnight in bacon ranch dressing....mmmm mmm good!

11/13/2007

Very quick and easy but oh so tasty! I served the chicken with fresh mushrooms sliced and cooked in a little Kraft Zesty Italian dressing, along with the rice - my husband loved it.

11/13/2007

Loved this simple recipe so easy and quick, added extra zing to shake & bake chicken. This willbecome a favourite.

11/13/2007

11/13/2007

This is a great family recipe that everyone liked. I give it 4 stars!

11/13/2007

11/13/2007

I didn't have any shake and bake, so I just used bread crumbs and added my own spices. I will be adding this to my regular dinner rotation, since my husband liked it too.

11/13/2007

very tasty, easy to prepare and not too high in fat and calories. enjoyed very much and will make again

11/13/2007

Very easy and a nice simple way to do chicken differently. Could be good if we have people over for dinner although not supper fancy.

So simple & so tasty!

11/13/2007

We are big chicken eaters and do appreciate new recipes using this type of meat.

11/13/2007

Excellent and easy. It added a little "ooomph" to the standard Shake n bake chicken. I will definitely make it again.

11/13/2007

Excellent *** I had dinner ready in 45 minutes. I added more pesto to the chicken and used lots of parmesan cheese instead of mozzarella. I sauteed mushrooms and red peppers with chicken broth and poured that over minute rice. It was wonderful.

11/13/2007

Simple recipe. The pesto gave it just a little extra to change an ordinary meal.

11/13/2007

I made this recipe just last night...it was a hit. It's even better the next day for lunch. I will definitely make this one again.

11/12/2007

Try this recipe tonight my family loves it.I dipped it in ranch dressing them the shake n bake.Spread a layer of pasto then the cheese it was delicious.will add it to my favour recipe.

11/10/2007

My family loved this chicken! I dipped the chicken in ranch dressing, then coated with the shake n bake. This gave it extra flavor and made the chicken juicier inside. I also did not measure out the pesto. I just spread a thin layer on each chicken breast. I served it with rice cooked with chicken broth instead of water and when cooked added some green onions, soya sauce, and toasted slivered almonds. For a vegetable I made the green beans with italien dressing, basil and sliced tomatoes. My family loved it all. Thanks Kraft for such quick wonderful meal ideas.

11/07/2007

This was such a spruce-up to regular shake 'n bake chicken - I was surprised. Even though it was a small amount of pesto and cheese, it made such a difference. Was very tasty.

03/12/2007

02/16/2007

This was sooo simple and delicious. I tossed some extra mozzarella on the rice for some flavor. The family loved it.

02/07/2007

Delicious, it was a quick "grown up" meal. I served it with parmesan pasta and salad - big hit!!
