  • 6 (4 oz) skinned, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red pepper or from a jar (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup pesto (homemade or in a jar)
  • 1/3 cup light cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup crushed corn flakes
  • 3 tbsps chopped fresh parsley (or 2 tsp dried)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • vegetable cooking spray
  • fresh thyme sprigs (optional)


  1. Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4 inch thickness using a meat mallet. Sprinkle salt and pepper, set aside.
  2. Combine red pepper, cream cheese and pesto in a small bowl, strirring until smooth. Spread cheese mixture evenly over the chicken breasts. Roll up, jellyroll fashion, secure with wooden picks.
  3. Dredge chicken pieces in combined corn flakes, parsley and paprika. Place in an 11 by 7 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes and remove tooth picks. Slice each roll into 6 rounds or slices for each person. Garnish with thyme sprigs if desired.
  5. Serve with rice and/or a salad.
