  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Place chicken breast halves between pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound each to 1/4-inch thickness. Season one side of each chicken breast with salt and pepper. Spread with goat cheese to edges. Top with arugula, peppers, and green onion. Press down on toppings, then roll up tightly, starting from a short end; secure with toothpicks. Brush pesto over rolls. Transfer to a 2-qt. rectangular baking dish.

  • Bake, uncovered, 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center (170°F). Let stand 5 minutes. Remove toothpicks and slice crosswise to serve.
