Creamy Tomato Pesto Stuffed Chicken - chicken breasts  stuffed with cream cheese, tomato pesto and prosciutto and coated with bread crumbs and almonds.Creamy Tomato Pesto Stuffed Chicken is a delicious recipe that is both simple and elegant. I love pesto and usually eat it with pasta but decided that it would be a perfect flavor to pair with chicken. I usually use green pesto in recipes but then I found a red pesto made by HemisFares at my local Smith’s Marketplace that I thought I would try in this recipe and it turned out wonderfully!

The HemisFares brand makes both a Pesto Genobese (green) Pesto and a Red Pesto and I think that either one would be delicious in this recipe. I love the HemisFares brand because of all of the authentic international products that they have – this pesto is absolutely amazing and this recipe tastes like one that you would eat at an upscale Italian restaurant!

Creamy Tomato Pesto Stuffed Chicken

  • 4-6 chicken breasts (about 2 lbs. chicken)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup HemisFares Red Pesto
  • 2 oz. prosciutto, chopped
  • 1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. slivered almonds, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. butter melted
  1. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and use a meat mallet to pound chicken to about 1/4″-1/8″ thick. Remove plastic wrap.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese, HemisFares Red Pesto and prosciutto.
  3. Place about 2 Tbsp of the mixture in the middle of each chicken breast. Roll up each chicken breast and securely fasten with a toothpick.
  4. Combine bread crumbs and almonds in a bowl. Brush chicken breasts with butter and then roll in the bread crumb mixture.
  5. Place the chicken breasts seam side down on a greased 9X13″ pan. Bake at 375 for about 25-30 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temp of 170.
  6. Serve immediately. I drizzled some spinach leaves with Italian dressing and then placed the chicken breasts on top.
