This recipe for chicken pesto rollups is a great make-ahead dinner your family will love.

The rollups are easy to make, healthy and delicious.


36 oz. chicken breasts

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

6 tbsp pesto

8 ounces shredded reduced-fat mozzarella

1 ½ cups Roma tomatoes

1 ½ cup cherry tomatoes

½ cup chopped basil

Non-stick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Season both sides of chicken (I like to use thinly sliced cutlets) with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Spread 1 tbsp pesto in the center of each cutlet, top with 2 thin tomato slices and sprinkle with 2-3 tbsp mozzarella cheese.

Roll chicken up tightly and seal ends with a toothpick.

Preheat large oven-safe skillet over medium/high heat with 1 tbsp oil.

Sear chicken roll-ups on both sides until golden brown, usually four minutes per side.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese and 1 cup cherry tomatoes.

Place skillet on center rack of oven and bake 13-15 minutes.

Remove toothpicks then plate rollups by spooning pan juices and roasted tomatoes on top.

Sprinkle with fresh basil and enjoy!
