    Really nice and easy to make recipe. I added chilly and some other types of spices like garlic powder, chicken seasoning and it turned out really delicious!

    Delicious, used 0% fat Greek yoghurt instead of creme fraiche and reduced fat pesto , still tastes luxurious xx

    Good, but a little too tomatoey, even though I only used about 100g of cherry tomatoes

    very good goes very nicely with the baked asparagus.
    Super easy and delicious. I used some McCormick pesto mix and sour cream instead of creme freiche, but we loved it!

    Great! Very Easy and quick recipe. I added some garlic and would add sliced onion to it next time too. my pesto was a basil sundried tomato pesto mix. I used sour cream, which was all I had. Tasted great. i served mine with grilled zucchini for a great Low Carb meal.

    It was so delicious! I had to substitute the créme for plain Greek yogurt and it was still outstanding. I would definitely recommend for a healthy easy to make dinner!

    This recipe is amazing! Thanks for sharing :-) I did add mushrooms & shallots (per another reviewers recomendation). I have already shared it with many of my friends, and can not wait to make it again! Quick, easy & full of fabulous flavor!

    Really good - had to chop chicken up as too thick to pan fry and substituted creme fraiche for quark as dieting and was still really lovely, had it with rice x

    Couldn't get Creme fresh in Lidl so opted for Greek yoghurt which seemed to work just as well - added mushrooms at the same time as tomatoes and served with courgette spaghetti 😊 lovely and healthy but felt just a bit naughty!

    Fantastic! Quick, easy, and even the picky toddlers ate it up (practically licked their plates clean)!

    Absolutely lovely! We are all veggie, so i used quorn fillets instead of chicken. I did 2 fillets per adult and 1 per child. Fussy child who doesn't like pesto pr new things declared it "Weird. But i like it!" And then asked for seconds.
