Pesto Stuffed Chicken

I'm super excited to be sharing my first post for the Secret Recipe Club!

If you are not familiar with the Secret Recipe Club, the way it works is this: Each month you are assigned to another blogger from your group secretly. You then pick a recipe from their blog to recreate and then share on your own blog.  Then everyone from your group posts on a specified day and you then get to see who had you and share the recipe you have recreated for your group member.

I wasn't actually supposed to be doing a post until next month but they needed someone to help and I gladly jumped in! And this month I am sharing a recipe from Morsels of Life. CJ shares tons of recipes and you will find everything from a basic pizza crust to elaborate desserts. I chose to make this Pesto Stuffed Chicken because I already have been wanting to make this for some time and this was as good of a time as any.

Pesto Stuffed Chicken









  • 4 Chicken breasts

  • 4 T. Pesto

  • 1 T. minced Garlic

  • 1/4 C. Mozzarella Cheese

  • 1/4 C. Parmesan Cheese

  • 1 egg

  • 2 T. flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Put your chicken into a bag and pound, pound, pound. You want your chicken to be as flat as you an get it.

  2. Next, using a small bowl mix your pesto, garlic and mozzarella. Spread a small amount onto the chicken but don't go all the way to the edge.

  3. Now roll up your chicken and use a toothpick or two to hold them together.

  4. In a small bowl beat your egg and in a second bowl mix together your flour and parmesan cheese. Dip your entire chicken roll into the egg and then into the parmesan cheese until it is fully covered.

  5. Line a pre sprayed casserole dish with your chicken and bake in the oven until chicken is browned- About 35 minutes.
