    So I cut the chicken breast in half and pounded them semi flat. I then wrapped the pesto mixture in the chicken & wrapped them w/ butcher twine. I used 1 tsp of garlic salt, 1 tsp of thyme, 1 tsp of basil, 1 tsp of oregano, 1 tsp of papirka & pepper to taste mixed in 3 tblspn olive oil for marinade. - 4/24/12
