This recipe is great for all phases of the South Beach diet. But it's so yummy you can eat it even if you're not counting carbs!
- 6 chicken breasts
- 6 ounces goat cheese, log type
- 6 ounces sun-dried tomato pesto (purchased or homemade)
- 1⁄2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
- 3⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated using fine grater
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken breasts. Pound chicken until 1/4 inch thick.
- Put pesto, goat cheese, and chopped basil in food processor and buzz a few times until mixture is combined but not completely blended.
- Spread 1/6 of pesto/basil/goat cheese mixture on each chicken breast. Roll up chicken, starting with smallest end, tucking in loose pieces (you can secure with tootpicks if necessary).
- Put parmesan cheese in flat dish, and roll each rolled up chicken breast in the cheese, patting on so you get as much cheese sticking on as you can.
- Spray glass casserole dish with nonstick spray and arrange chicken so pieces are not touching. Bake 30-40 minutes, or until chicken is slightly browned and firm, but not hard to the touch.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
TOTALLY AWESOME is this recipe!
It gets a WOW from ME!
So easy to make,
SO easy to bake :)
GREAT for entertaining when want to look like you did fuss, true!
Was a BIG BIG BIG hit at our dinner party last night too!
RAVE REVIEWS!!! i fed 5 hungry boys last night with this and they literally ALL LICKED THEIR PLATES CLEAN!!!! i now have to cook every wednesday at their house. ;) i used... 8oz of goat cheese, 7oz of pesto, and about 6 fresh large sundried tomatoes (julienne). i then rolled the store bought thin sliced perdue chicken breasts til the filler was gone. made about 10 or so. some ppl requested a row of extra sundried (julienned again) rolled into theirs. i then rolled in whole wheat flour, egg whites, and then a combo of grated parm and whole wheat bread crumbs. baked at 350 for 40 mins PERFECTION. ty so much for the wonderful meal concept!!! <3
made this and it was soooo good. very easy and tasty. thanks
