I forgot that I had pesto frozen from my basil plants this summer. I did use jarred pesto and it was just fine. I don't have a meat pounder but I tried to get the chicken as flat as I could. I only managed to fold it once over and not in a roll. It was still good.
Oh, I also used panko crumbs instead of ground almonds. I guess for this recipe I was just stealing the idea of it and not the actual recipe.
The pesto and cheese filling was good. This one will definitely be made again.
