Pesto Chicken Rollatine
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
- 3 Tbsp
- prepared basil pesto (or your own if you make homemade)
- slices procciuto
- 2 Tbsp
- grated mozzarella cheese
- olive oil, salt, and pepper
1Pound 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.
2Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons of pesto on the surface of each breast. Top with one slice of prociutto and 1 tablespoon of grated mozzarella.
3Gently roll each chicken breast, making sure all filling is tucked inside. Secure with 2 pieces of kitchen twine (one at each end), or toothpicks.
4Preheat 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.
5Transfer to oven on midle rack and finish (around 5 minutes). Remove kitchen twine/toothpicks and serve.
