    Made this tonight and it was a HUGE hit! I’d never tried pesto, so this was a great introduction. Keep up the great work, ladies! FYI, I had to cook my chicken for quite a while longer than yours, but my breasts were big.

    • So glad your family liked it! Yes, if the chicken is larger you will need to cook longer. Next time try pounding the chicken thinner so it can cook faster.
