Chicken Pesto Roll-Ups

One night I looked in the refrigerator and pondered what I could make with chicken, cheese, mushrooms and pesto. This pretty dish was the result. Add Italian bread and a fruit salad for a complete meal! —Melissa Nordmann, Mobile, AL

    The pesto chicken roll ups delivered a rather new taste sensation. It was a pleasant departure from many of what has become to common in the way of chicken dishes. I suggest giving this unique recipe a try.
