Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Another catch-up post. I made these a few weeks ago and we're having them again this week. These are super easy, especially with only three ingredients, and super tasty and a great way to use up some homemade pesto! I got the recipe from AllRecipes. We all love them! I made them as written below the first time. This week, I'm going to use up some irish white cheddar cheese with some garlic scape pesto. Yum!

I'll update later with a picture.

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
1 cup prepared basil pesto
4 thick slices mozzarella cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of the pesto sauce onto each flattened chicken breast. Place one slice of cheese over the pesto. Roll up tightly, and secure with toothpicks. Place in a lightly greased baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken is nicely browned and juices run clear.
