MAKE THIS! Seriously….make this.
This simple 3 ingredient pesto stuffed chicken recipe seems soooooo fancy. This is a great easy dish to serve any dinner guests and will make you seem like a culinary superstar, even if your not. It only takes a few minutes to assemble and has only a trace amount of carbs.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (pounded flat)
1/2 cup of basil pesto (store bought or homemade)*
8 slices of prosciutto ham
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spread about 2 tablespoons of pesto on each chicken breast. Roll up the chicken and wrap each chicken breast in 2 slices of prosciutto to cover the entire breast. Place the wrapped chicken breasts into a greased baking dish.
Bake until the chicken is fully cooked (165 degrees – about 25 minutes depending on the size). I use a meat thermometer to make sure I don’t overcook the chicken breast.
I have made this with store bought pesto and homemade pesto. For store bought, I recommend the 3.5 ounce jar of Alessi Pesto.
