DIRECTIONS

  • Pound out chicken breasts with meat mallet or rolling pin.
  • Take unseasoned breadcrumbs and add salt, pepper, garlic salt, parmesan cheese, thyme, and any other herbs you desire to the crumbs. (You may decide amounts to your taste, I use about a teaspoon of the spices and a tablespoon or 2 of the parmesan depending on how many breadcrumbs you use).
  • Combine homemade or store bought pesto (I prefer my homeade pesto) with shredded mozzarella cheese in a cup making sure to coat all of the cheese evenly with the pesto.
  • Spread a generous amount of the cheese mixture on the pounded out chicken breast.
  • Roll the chicken breast up and secure with toothpicks.
  • Dip the chicken breast in milk and then into the seasoned bread crumbs.
  • Place chicken onto a greased pan and place into a 400°F oven for approximately 20 minutes or until the chicken juices run clear.
