    Very good. I didn't add almonds on top because I didn't have any, instead I added some parmesan cheese. Yum!  -  16 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I thought this recipe was great. It was simple and delicious. It's a good recipe for trying pesto the first time. Yum.  -  21 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe was very easy. I marinated the chicken with italian dressing and olive oil in the morning, so the chicken got a nice flavor, then in the evening I grilled on my square pan. I also made my own pesto with a recipe from this site called "Easy Pesto". I will definitely make this again.  -  13 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
