Pesto, Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Pix

I've been meaning to post this cook from last week but I've been lazy to be quite honest :)  Anyhow, we have grown tired of the basic chicken breasts and thought we'd jazz them up.  We started out by pounded the breasts super thin but I have to ask what kind of breast enlargement surgery these chickens have been having.  Because I swear the ones we buy are the size of like a turkey...Anyhow.....We slathered on some pesto sauce (premade from Earth Fare)


Then put on some fresh grated mozzarella.  My wife wanted them super cheesy


Then my wife folded them up she said it was too much to roll up. and Wrapped around with a couple slices of good ol Indiana Bacon


Put them on the Egg at about 375 direct grid.  Really didn't lose much of the cheese for being so loosely packed


It took quite some time for me to feel they were safe to come off but wow do they look great


Sliced them open and we ended up for the 2 boys and my wife finished about 2 of them.   Saved the other for sandwiches later in the week and I can't figure out which I enjoyed more.

    Mighty fine!  Awesome combination of flavors...I can almost taste it.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Awesome! Will try that.
