Cheater Chicken and Pesto Rolls

The below recipe was found on Good Morning Utah. My friend, Shauna, made this for our Bonko night last week. I am making it tonight for dinner. I found EVERYTHING I needed at Super Target, including the rotisserie chicken. If you love Italian food like me, you will LOVE this recipe. It is to die for!

3 Tbs roasted red peppers, chopped
2 Tbs Black olives, chopped
Fresh Parmesan Cheese

Blend pesto into the cream cheese and spread mixture over entire surface of dough. Distribute chicken evenly over pesto cream. Sprinkle chopped peppers and olives over chicken.
Carefully roll up from the long end and gently compact as you go. With seam side down, slice into 12 equal sections. Place slices, on their sides, into greased 10-inch round pan or cast iron skillet. Drizzle lightly with sauce and sprinkle with parmesan.
