Step 1

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct, high heat.

Step 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.

Step 3

Season chicken pieces on both sides with pepper.

Step 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.

Step 5

Rub remaining pesto over exterior of chicken to coat lightly.

Step 6

Place chicken on oiled cooking grate; cover gas grill.
