Chicken breasts - dried out

OK where did I go wrong?  Last night I tried to make the Chicken wrapped with pancetta, rolled around spinach and roasted peppers.  Besides the nightmare trying to roll them up I cooked them at 400 direct raised for ~ 45 minutes.  They cam out VERY dry just like every time I cook chicken breasts - Tasted like cardboard.

I also cooked some chicken legs at the same time and they came out good.  My guess is the skin keeps the moisture in as I have done spatchcock chickens and they are always moist.  Just chicken breasts come out horrible.
