Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast Pesto Recipe
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
- Place chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and pound each out until thin. Set aside.
- In a food processor, combine the arugula, basil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and a pinch of salt and pepper. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin stream until you get a pesto consistency.
- Evenly dollop the pesto in the center of each chicken breast, evenly sprinkle with cheese, and roll the chicken up, pushing the sides in to keep the filling inside.
- Wrap two slices of bacon around each chicken roll and place in a lightly greased baking dish.
- Bake for 45 minutes to 75 minutes, checking to make sure your chicken is golden brown and the bacon is crispy.
- Serve immediately.
