Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls...........

This is what's for dinner in the near future. It's different and that pesto adds just the extra element you are looking for. There's only 5 ingredients plus your cooking spray; so how simple is that!!
Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
4 thick slices of mozzarella cheese
1 cup prepared basil pesto
1 or 2 beaten egg whites
Bread crumbs
cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of the pesto sauce onto each flattened chicken breast. Place one slice of cheese over the pesto. Roll up tightly, and secure with toothpicks. Dip in beaten egg whites and roll in bread crumbs.  Place in a lightly greased baking dish and spray with cooking spray. Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken is nicely browned and juices run clear.
Till next time..........
