Sundried Tomato Pesto Part 2: Stuffed Chicken and a VIRUS

I had a whole list of things I was going to get done today, then things changed! At around 3:30 I was checking facebook and a screen came up saying I had a virus. It looked like my computer's virus software so I clicked on it...BAD IDEA!!! It is a virus called Security Tool that disquises itself as a computer virus software. They try to get you to buy their "Security Software" to remove the "viruses" on your computer, when it is actually the virus! I thought it looked fishy so I didn't purchase it. Luckly my internet was still working (slowly) and I found many websites devoted to removing this virus. I purchased a $29 program called Spyware Doctor that many of the websites recommended. It took many many tries to get it to work because this virus kept turning off my computer half way during the scan! Anyways 4 horus later I had finally removed the virus...so Beware of the "Security Tool" Virus!!!

Here is part 2 of my Sundried Tomato Pesto Series. If you missed how to make the pesto look at yesterday's blog post!
Sundried Tomato Stuffed Chicken
Chicken Breasts
Fresh Mozzarella
Sundried Tomato Pesto
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper
(parmesan is pictured, but I didn't use it)

Put chicken breast in a large Ziploc bag. (I realize that my chicken breasts are a funny shape, don't ask...)

Use a meat mallet and bang the chicken until it is very thin (this will relieve the stress!)

Slice Mozzarella into thin strips (2 for each breast)

Spread about 1 Tb spoon of pesto on the "ugly" side of the chicken breast.

Put the cheese on the chicken and roll up.
If you have some cooking twine or even toothpicks use them to close the seams. (I didn't have either so I had to try to hold them together with tongs during the next step.


Heat oil in a skillet and cook the chicken on each side for about 2 minutes.

Put seam side down in a baking dish. Brush the chicken with olive oil and then salt and pepper.

Bake chicken in the oven on 375 for 25 mins.

Enjoy!
PS this salad was really good, will blog about it after the sundried tomato series.
