1
Preheat oven to 425°F.
2
Slice the chicken breasts in half lengthwise so you have 8 thin chicken cutlets.
3
Place each cutlet in a quart-sized zip-lock bag or between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound into 1/8-inch thick cutlets.
4
Season both sides of the chicken cutlets with garlic salt and black pepper.
5
Spread 1 Tbsp of pesto sauce in the center of each cutlet. Top with 2 thin tomato slices and sprinkle with 2-3 Tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese.
6
Carefully roll up the chicken cutlets, sealing the ends with a toothpick.
7
In a large oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil and unsalted butter over medium-high heat.
8
Add the chicken roll-ups to the skillet and sear on both sides until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.
9
Sprinkle the tops of the chicken roll-ups with the remaining shredded mozzarella cheese and add the cherry tomatoes to the skillet.
10
Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F on an instant-read thermometer.
11
Garnish with chopped fresh basil leaves before serving.
