DELICIOUS! Served it with a mixed green salad. Oh So Good!

I butterflied the breasts, sprinkled them with Italian seasoning blend, and substituted fresh basil for the pesto and it was an absolute winner. The sauce insured the chicken was super moist and it made my broccoli delicious.

This is great...I made it with chicken breast strips instead. I made a big batch and used it on my salads for lunch over the next couple of days. This was a meal for he entire family.
