Pesto Stuffed Chicken

Submitted by: SHAPELYSHELLY

Introduction

Something I just whipped up in the kitchen. Everything I did was to taste so the measurements are rough estimates. Something I just whipped up in the kitchen. Everything I did was to taste so the measurements are rough estimates.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 Chicken Breasts, boneless & skinless
    4 Tbls. chopped basil
    1/4 C. Almonds (or other nuts)
    4 Cloves garlic
    1/8 C Asiago Cheese (or other dry cheese)
    1 Tbls. Olive Oil
    Italian Dressing (optional)
    Bread Crumbs



Tips

-You can also do this in a bowl with a whisk but you will have to chop all the ingredients into much smaller pieces.
-I also found that the cheese balances out the garlic so if you used too much garlic add a little more cheese.
