Prep Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes

  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  4. Divide the filling evenly among the chicken breasts, spreading it over one side of each breast.
  5. Carefully fold the other side of each chicken breast over the filling, creating a roll. Secure the rolls with kitchen twine or toothpicks.
  6. In an oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken rolls and sear them on all sides until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  7. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  8. Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.
