Chicken Rollatini stuffed with Pesto and Philadephia

Chicken Rollatini stuffed with Pesto and Philadephia

Guys this recipe… If you plan your meals ahead, change your plans. You have to try these chicken rollatini ASAP. I mean, they’re stuffed with pesto AND cream cheese! May I say that again? It’s a pesto-cream cheese stuffing. Not only does it keep the chicken super moist and tender but it also adds an amazing flavor. It basically takes plain chicken breast to the next level. Ok, disclaimer. I’m a huge fan of basil pesto (homemade being the best!). So maybe I’m a bit biased. Everything with pesto sounds amazing to me. But hey honestly, this chicken truly is amazing! (Did I just say ‘amazing’ three times?!) I ate some 4 times already —for recipe testing and photography purposes!— and I’m not even close to being fed up with it.
So I have a challenge for you. When you do make this recipe, try not to eat half the bowl of the pesto-philadelphia mixture. Because, I’m telling you, it’s totally irresistible.
Oh and I almost forgot to mention that this baby is only 300 cal and low carb. You see,no excuses!
