I think because my chicken was thicker it took longer to cook. The taste of the chicken with the topping was really good. However, the chicken itself is SO BLAND. I feel like it needs to be marinaded or something. Despite that, I'd still make this again, especially since it was so easy. I actually forgot the cheese on top but still enjoyed the topping!

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 made this dish using 6 chicken breasts, 2 jars of mushrooms, only half a can of chopped olives, and sliced provolone. Next time I will use fresh mushrooms because we like them better. The sliced provolone worked great because I could just top each breast with one slice. This was extremely flavorful and only needed minor tweaks per our taste preference! I used the same amount of pesto the recipe called for.
