Peace. Love. Ranch.

Pesto-Ranch Chicken Rolls

Here’s how to level up chicken with pesto, cheese and ranchy goodness.

This dish is inspired by our latest food obsession, the no-recipe recipe. Unlike a traditional recipe, this dish doesn’t call for a list of fixed ingredients, so you can customize it to fit your tastes. Explore all of our no-recipe recipes here, and shake up some mealtime magic, your way.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.
  • To get started: Take boneless, skinless chicken breasts and pound them until they are ¼-inch thick. Season each one on both sides with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Shaker.
  • Spread a few tablespoons of store-bought pesto onto each piece of chicken. Drape a slice of mozzarella cheese over the pesto. Roll each one up tightly and secure with toothpicks.
  • Place seam side down in prepared baking dish. Bake uncovered in a 350-degree oven for about 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is browned on top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I had a little higher hopes for this recipe, but it filled me up and that's what really matters. I hope for a more robust flavor, but this was still pretty good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dish Fresh mozzarella makes it a better dish for my family. We really like pesto and this is so good. We make extra for lunches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super tasty this was really good but it's definitely worth using fresh mozzarella instead of just a slice of mozzarella cheese. Also adding a little mozzarella inside the chicken makes definitely for a creamier version. We also tried it with spinach and cheese and it was really good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious So delicious. Next time I need to pound the chicken thinner as mine took a little longer to cook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! I nb used a little less pesto and wrapped the outside of my chicken with partially cooked bacon, that finished cooking in the oven. Absolutely delicious!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be careful with the pesto!! As a single working Mom, I am completely responsible for all the cooking and creation of healthy meals for my family! I am a born-again & love trying new recipes. When I saw this Chicken Pesto I was wart and excited as I'd never used pesto before. The recipe was simple and easy to make and my chicken came out so tender and moist. My only concern is the amount of pesto the recipe required. I should have used lass for my taste.
