Recipe Review!

A Little Tipsy posted a recipe that I thought looked yummy a couple of weeks ago for these Cheese Pesto Chicken Rolls.  I didn't take a picture of mine, but here's a pic I stole from A Little Tipsy.  Thanks Michelle for the great recipe!
Here's what Michelle's recipe looks like, I made a few changes to mine based on what I had available.  My changes are in purple.

  • 1 Chicken Breast
  • Approx. 4 T. Fresh Pesto (Michelle used this recipe or I bought some)
  • Olive Oil cooking spray (or whatever kind you like)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella (I used cheddar, because I didn't have any mozz.)
  • 1 can Crescent dough
  • 1/4 C. Freshly grated Parmesan (I used Assiago)
Preheat the oven according to crescent dough directions.

1. Cover the chicken in 1 T. of Pesto and marinate for 15 minutes.
2. Warm a non stick skillet and spray with Olive oil cooking spray.
3. Cook the chicken for a few minutes on each side. I like to cut it in to pieces as it cooks so I can see exactly when it's done. Plus, then all sized get some of the yummy flavor. The pesto will for a nice crust and look a little something like this.4. Roll out your crescent dough on a cookie sheet.
5. Put a big pinch of mozzarella (cheddar) on each crescent, a dollop of pesto on top of that and a piece of chicken on top.
6. Roll each crescent and make sure the filling is covered.
7. Cover the top of each roll with shredded Parmesan (Assiago).
8. Bake according to crescent package instructions until golden brown.

I was a little skeptical when I pulled them out of the oven, because the smelled of the cooking Pesto was awful!  But I'm a little over sensitive to smells and my hubby disagreed with me.  So I dished them up and we dug in with a lettuce salad on the side.  The Pesto Rolls were awesome and we'll definitely be making them again.  Hubby says, "These are like party food."

Looking for the perfect give for someone who has everything?!?!

Clearly the answer is a ticket bowl!  Who wouldn't want one of these?

Add a DVD or two, some popcorn and candy and there's a fun and kitchy gift basket!

I think I'm going to have to make myself one of these :-)

I have been starring at my empty patio for the last 3 weeks and wondering what to do out there.  We have a small cafe table with two chairs that is just about the perfect size for the out patio, but I wanted some color, some plants.  I've been looking at planters and trying to decide what size I needed to make the patio a little more fun and friendly.  Well today, I'm here to announce that I found it!  Check it out here at Keen Inspirations
