Pesto Stuffed Chicken

Pesto Stuffed Chicken

One of my favorite easy week-night meals–only 3 ingredients! I love using my homemade pesto, but any pesto will of course do! I also add in goat cheese because it complements the basil quite well, but can easily be omitted and will still be delicious!


  • black pepper to taste
  • 8 oz chicken breast boneless skinless
  • 1 oz goat cheese
  • parmesan grated
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • salt to taste
  • Procedure

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Place your breast(s) between layers of plastic wrap and use a mallet to pound out to about 1/2
  • Spread 1/2 of the pesto on each breast of chicken.
  • Distribute 1/2 of the goat cheese on each breast of chicken covered in pesto.
  • Sprinkle with salt & pep.
  • Roll up the breast and place on a baking sheet lined with foil, seam side down.
  • Sprinkle tops with salt & pep.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes, until cooked through completely.
