  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine cream cheese, pesto and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Place wax paper or foil over one chicken breast on a plate and beat with a rolling pin to thin even more.
  • Spread a spoonful of cream cheese mixture on the chicken breast and roll it up.
  • Beat the egg in a bowl. Place bead crumbs in a dish.
  • Use a spoon to rub some egg on the chicken roll
  • Gently place the chicken roll in the breadcrumbs dish and cover entirely with the crumbs.
  • Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Add a toothpick in the middle to hold the chicken roll together.
  • Repeat until all chicken breasts are in the baking dish.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and crispy.


If you want the top of chicken to be extra crispy, turn the oven on high broil for the last 3-5 minutes of bake time.
