Pesto & Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken

This is my all time fav chicken recipe. Simple ingredients with amazing results.

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin (about ¼-1/2 inch thick)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup basil pesto (for a great homemade version go to this link —>!)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray a shallow baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Lay chicken breasts out on a flat surface. In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic powder and whisk together. Sprinkle seasoning over chicken, flipping to get both sides.
  3. Spread about ¼ cup pesto onto each chicken breast. Sprinkle with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese. Gently roll up chicken breasts so that the pesto and cheese are on the “inside” of the chicken roll. Place chicken rolls in a single layer in prepared baking dish. Top with additional pesto and cheese if desired. Bake 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
