  • Preheat broiler. Mix parsley, 4 Tbsp. (1/4 cup) of the mustard, the cheese, garlic, basil and 1/4 cup of the egg product in small bowl until well blended. Stir in 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs; mix well. Spread evenly onto chicken breasts; roll up each breast starting from one of the short ends.
  • Blend remaining egg product and remaining 2 Tbsp. mustard. Dip chicken rolls in egg mixture, then in remaining 1 cup bread crumbs, turning to evenly coat all sides. Cut each roll-up crosswise into 4 equal pieces, then thread onto skewer. (Each skewer will hold 4 spirals.)
  • Broil, 6 inches from heat, 10 to 15 min. or until chicken is cooked through, turning occasionally and brushing with the melted margarine. Serve with rice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious! Delicious! My husband and I cooked this together for our first Valentine's Day dinner as a married couple together :) We halfed the entire recipe and it was more than enough for the two of us. Very yummy! Calling it "pesto" is a bit deceiving.. but it is very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from instead of rolling the chicken up i just spread the pesto over the chicken. instead of rolling the chicken up i just spread the pesto over the chicken. I also added olive oil instead of egg product. My husband wasn't looking forward to eating the chicken but once he tasted it he at it pretty quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got ready made pesto. I got ready made pesto. The flavors were great, however, rolling it up then cutting it was not so easy, but it does cook SUPER FAST when they are small like that. This is one of my favorites!
