“Chicken with pesto wrapped in bacon. My husband and even my 2-year-old daughter love this chicken! Easy to make, yet tastes like you've spent hours in the kitchen. Simply delicious!” - by dawna715
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Lay a chicken breast out flat, and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Spread pesto sauce over the chicken breast, and roll the chicken breast in a slice of bacon, securing the roll with toothpicks. Lay the rolled chicken breast into a 9x9-inch baking dish. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts. Pour the vegetable oil over the chicken breasts.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink inside and the bacon is crisp, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a roll should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Not too many changes but they suited my family's tastes, as I am sure the recipe is just fine as written. A great way to use up extra pesto and chicken!!!"
"Very easy and really excellent recipe - my changes were to pound the breasts to 1/4 to 1/2 inch - sprinkle a little garlic powder on each along with a tablespoon of parmesian cheese ( on top of the pe..." See moresto) - roll up and secure. Then I drizzled a very small amount of olive oil on each - turned out just GREAT"
