Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Roll-Ups
Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Roll-Ups
4 chicken breast fillets boneless, skinless
1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
1/2 cup pesto sauce
1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes drained and chopped
1/3 cup pine nuts lightly toasted
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp. butter
Fresh basil or cherry tomatoes (for garnish)

Prep: 20 minutes Cook: 35 to 40 minutes Makes: 8 to 10 appetizers

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place chicken breasts between plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin to flatten to 1/4-inch thickness. Discard plastic wrap.
2. Stir together cheeses. Spread chicken breasts with equal amounts of cheese mixture, pesto, sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts. Roll up tightly and secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
3. Sauté in butter for about 10 minutes or until golden brown on all sides. Transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet and cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Let cool slightly before cutting into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Garnish with fresh basil and cherry tomatoes, if desired.
