How to Make Cheesy Ham & Pesto Stuffed Chicken~Robynne


  1. Sprinkle chicken breasts with garlic salt. Place 3 or 4 slices of ham on each breast. Spread 1-2 teaspoons of pesto over ham and top with Swiss cheese. Fold chicken in half like a book. Set aside.
  2. To make coating combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Carefully coat chicken with, being sure not to lose any of the yummy stuffing.
    Heat oven to 300 degrees.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat and saute chicken on each side until nicely brown. Don't worry if all the cheese is not melted. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.
