Post  Admin on Mon Nov 09, 2009 10:09 pm


* 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds total)
* Salt
* Ground black pepper
* 1/2 cup Parmesan Pesto (see recipe below)
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* Fresh basil sprigs (optional)

1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2. Spoon a slightly rounded tablespoon of the Parmesan Pesto onto each chicken breast half; spread pesto over chicken. Fold in bottom and sides of each chicken breast half; roll up into a spiral. Secure with wooden toothpicks.
3. Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add chicken rolls; cook, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally for even browning. Remove toothpicks.
4. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
5. Parmesan Pesto: Place 1 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup olive oil, and 1 small clove garlic, halved, in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth, stopping as necessary and scraping side of container. Makes 1/2 to 2/3 cup pesto.
