My husband and I always have a wonderful herb garden and love to make homemade basil pesto, and are always looking for creative ways to use it. Enjoy!

Cook:

Ingredients

2
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
3 Tbsp
prepared basil pesto (or your own if you make homemade)
2
slices procciuto
2 Tbsp
grated mozzarella cheese
olive oil, salt, and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thickness (if they are very thick, I butterfly them and then pound to make the process easier) Season both sides with salt and pepper.
2
Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons of pesto on the surface of each breast. Top with one slice of prociutto and 1 tablespoon of grated mozzarella.
3
Gently roll each chicken breast, making sure all filling is tucked inside. Secure with 2 pieces of kitchen twine (one at each end), or toothpicks.
4
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium to medium high heat on range. Coat with olive oil and place rollatines in skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until slightly browned.
5
Transfer to oven on midle rack and finish (around 5 minutes). Remove kitchen twine/toothpicks and serve.
