Chicken Breasts with Parmesan Pesto

The cheesy pesto in this recipe is great on chicken but works equally well spread on sandwiches or tossed with pasta.

Directions

  1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Spoon a slightly rounded tablespoon of the Parmesan Pesto onto each chicken breast half; spread pesto over chicken. Fold in bottom and sides of each chicken breast half; roll up into a spiral. Secure with wooden toothpicks.
  3. Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add chicken rolls; cook, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally for even browning. Remove toothpicks.
  4. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
