Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Combine cream cheese, pesto and pepper in a small bowl with a fork.
  • Cut a horizontal slit along the thin, long edge of a chicken breast half, nearly through to the opposite side.
  • Open up each breast and place one-fourth of the filling in the center. Close the breast over the filling, pressing the edges firmly together to seal.
  • Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts and filling.
  • Lightly beat egg white with a fork in a medium bowl. Place breadcrumbs in a shallow glass dish. Hold each chicken breast half together and dip in the egg white, then dredge in the breadcrumbs. (Discard leftovers.)
  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts; cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Place the chicken, browned-side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center or until an instant-read thermometer registers 170°F, about 20 minutes.
