Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

Premade pesto
Part skim low moisture shredded mozzarella
4 chicken breasts, the thinner the better (I ended up with 6 tonight because some were so thick I had to split them)
Olive oil
Toothpicks


Directions

Preheat oven to 425º. Trim chicken breasts and lie flat. Spread pesto over middle of chicken breast. Do not spread to edges of chicken or you will have a tough time rolling them up. Next sprinkle mozzarella cheese. This is where it gets a little messy. Take one end of chicken breast and roll up to the other end. Secure with one or two toothpicks. Repeat until all chicken breasts are rolled. Place a rack on a baking sheet and place each roll on top, seam side down. Brush with a little olive oil. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until juices run clear. Before serving, remind diners that there are toothpicks in each roll. I once failed to mention that to my boyfriend who bit into one. Oops!
