Reviews for Pesto-Olive Chicken
"A family favorite. All 11 of us enjoy this dish."
"I also used the fresh mushrooms, sauteed them a little bit before adding to the dish. It was very tasty!"
"This was not the least bit good. Would'nt even consider trying it again."
"This was wonderful! I used fresh mushrooms (sauteed for a little while before putting with the chicken), and used mozzarella instead of provolone because that's what I had on hand. It was just absolutely terrific! Great company meal, too. Thanks for sharing - it's a wonderful recipe."
"i've had this recipe for awhile, always meaning to make it. i'm sorry i waited so long! it was GREAT! everyone loved it even the kids. the only thing i did differently was that i used sliced provolone cheese and used fresh mushrooms. AWESOME! i will make this often!!!"
