DIRECTIONS

  • Flatten chicken thighs.
  • MAKE PESTO: Microwave oil and garlic together on HIGH 40 seconds; process with basil through pepper in a food processor.
  • Spread about 1 tsp pesto down center of each thigh, leaving a ¼-inch border on short ends.
  • Starting at a short end, roll each thigh up with pesto inside and secure with a toothpick.
  • Arrange rolls ½ inch apart, seam sides down, in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 375° until a cooking thermometer registers 170° (about 30 minutes), turning rolls after 15 minutes.
  • IMPORTANT: Cool, transfer to a covered container and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove toothpicks and cut each roll crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
