Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct, high heat.
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.
Season chicken pieces on both sides with pepper.
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.
Rub remaining pesto over exterior of chicken to coat lightly.
Place chicken on oiled cooking grate; cover gas grill.
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.
