DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine Boursin, 1/3 cup of pesto and onions in a small bowl.
  • Spread 2 tablespoons of boursin mixture on one side of each flattened chicken breast (cover the entire breast, leaving 1/4 inch edge around each breast).
  • Fold the chicken breast in half and gently pound edges to slightly seal.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat.
  • Carefully dredge chicken in flour, and salt and pepper.
  • Place chicken in skillet and brown on both sides until golden (chicken will finish cooking in the oven).
  • Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • To the drippings in the skillet add wine and butter and deglaze pan, by gently scraping the bottom.
  • Once the sauce has come to a boil remove from heat.
  • Place chicken in a 3 x 11 casserole dish.
  • Pour sauce over the chicken and dollop each breast with a teaspoon of pesto.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
