Mixing two of my favorite ingredients together is so delicious! Just a few spoonfuls of pesto, cream cheese and cracked pepper adds a fresh and creamy flavor to the baked chicken rolls. It also helps keep the chicken moist while baking.
After spreading the cream cheese and pesto mixture on the chicken breasts, I like to roll my chicken, then dip into breadcrumbs and bake.
For a quick side, asparagus is wonderful drizzled in olive oil and tossed in sea salt and cracked pepper. Roast it in the oven at the same time your chicken is cooking for a perfect meal.
