  • Summary

    Cheesy chicken sounded pretty tough to top, but our chefs were up to the challenge. They went and made it 25x (a scientific number) more delicious by spreading a layer of bright, herby pesto beneath melty mozzarella. And while chicken is the main event here, the sides are excellent accompanying acts. We’re serving up crispy-edged roasted carrots and buttery, lemony rice for a sweet-and-savory sensation.
