Servings: 4 servings
- 4 chicken breasts small (3-4 ounces each)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup pesto
- 8 slices Canadian bacon
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup pizza sauce
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes

Add each chicken breast to a large plastic bag, and use a mallet or a rolling pin to flatten chicken into an even and thin layer.
Take each chicken breast, and season with salt and pepper lightly.
Spread each chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon of pesto, add 2 slices of Canadian bacon, and top with 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese.
Roll chicken breasts.
Preheat oven to 425º F.
Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat, and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Brown the chicken roll ups, cooking for about 4-5 minutes per side over high heat. Remove skillet from heat.
Top each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce and the remaining cheese. Add cherry tomatoes to the skillet between the chicken breasts.
Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes, until the chicken breasts are baked through.
