                Chicken was watery and tasteless.

                  More than likely because the chicken should be seared first

                  Sometimes it’s the quality of meat you’re buying.

                      Made this for dinner tonight but I used 1oz herbed goat cheese on each breast, a thin slice of tomato, and about 1T premade basil pesto along with salt and pepper. It was delicious! Will definitely make it again! I have not tried it with mozzerella but highly recommend the substitution of goat cheese. I served it with buttered broccoli.

                        Quick and tasty. Added a roasted poblano Chile on top of chicken breast then cheese and tomatoe. Didn’t have pesto so used to Tito’s sauce on top. Was amazing tastes. Will do again. Made two so will eat the other later.

                                  Why is the protein so high? Isn’t there about 7 grams of protein per 1 ounce of chicken.. if the serving size is 3 ounces how is it 33?

                                    I think the other comment is correct. Its not figuring right. I changed to 2 serving per breast. And one serving. I got 136 g oh protein, something is off with programming. The only way that I got it to calculate correctly is to put a serving was a half a breast then it gave me like 2.6 grams of carbs. Then if I change to 1/4 of a breast I got 16 grams of protein change. 16 g of protein for 1/4 of a chicken breast still high

                                    It uses 24 oz of chicken and serves 4 so 6 oz/serving

                                    Really tasty! I simplified it using ready-made pesto with some extra garlic added and I used marinara instead of tomato because I don't "do" tomato. Will definitely make again 👍

                                    The meal tastes good. Trouble is that 1 serving is 66 grams of protein. My daily allotment is 70 grams of protein. Makes it hard to plan the other meals.

                                      Isn't It 70% protein? It's not the same Así 70g. I'm just asking!

                                    This was so very good! My husband raved about it! Used fresh basil from our herb garden. Delicious.
