Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

A sophisticated sounding dish that uses ready-made pesto sauce as a time-saver. A great special occasion or company dish.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Pound chicken breasts between sheets of waxed paper. Mix gruyere cheese, pesto, pine nuts, and green onions in a small bowl.
  3. Spread 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on top of each chicken breast and roll tightly. Dredge chicken breasts in flour. Saute chicken breasts in heated oil at medium-high heat until golden brown, turning occasionally, for approximately 6 minutes.
  4. Place chicken in pan and bake until chicken is tender and cooked through, about 20 minutes.

I love anything with pesto and this didn't disappoint. I was able to scale this recipe back to serve one with no problem. Since I have oven going pans, I skipped the extra baking dish step. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag Game. :).
