  • 4 Compliments Balance Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Compliments Pesto Sauce
  • 1/2 cup small fresh mozzarella balls (or use larger balls cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup Fire Roasted Red Peppers


  1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct, high heat.
  2. While grill heats, with a sharp knife, cut a pocket lengthwise in the edge of each chicken breast half, taking care to avoid cutting through to the other side. 
  3. Season chicken pieces on both sides with pepper.
  4. Spread about 1 tablespoon of pesto inside each pocket, then fill each with 1/4 of the mozzarella balls and the roasted red pepper slices.
  5. Rub remaining pesto over exterior of chicken to coat lightly.
  6. Place chicken on oiled cooking grate; cover gas grill. 
  7. Cook, turning once with a wide spatula, until meat is browned and no longer pink in centre (cut to test, but do not disturb filling), about 20 minutes total.
