I agree with another reviewer who wondered why water was used instead of wine. Also, why a cup of fluid? The tomatoes release a ton of liquid. Add to that, the cup of water and it's very watery. I think this recipe needs more depth of flavor.
I will make this again, but I will use wine. I will also cook down the juices to a thicker sauce. And probably use more herbs.
If the next time isn't better, I will probably not make this again
The combination was absolutely delicious. The pesto was so good we’re going to make it for pasta! And the chicken, tomato, shallot combination was perfect. Next time I would include even more shallots.
The pesto was absolutely delicious, however it was a strange accompaniment in my opinion with the rest of the dish. I also am perplexed why the recipe calls for a cup of water instead of wine…
I like this recipe!
