Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
Place chicken breasts between two sheets of waxed paper. Using a mallet, flatten the chicken breasts to about 1/4 inch (5 mm) thickness. Spread the pesto on the chicken breasts. Cover each breast with a slice of ham and grated gruyère cheese. Roll the breasts and close them with toothpicks.
In an open skillet, heat the butter at medium-high and brown the chicken breasts on all sides. Put the breasts on a cooking plate and cook in the oven at 375°F (190°C) about 15 minutes or until the chicken has lost its pinkish tint inside.
Meanwhile, in the skillet, add flour to the cooking fat from the chicken and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil while stirring with a wire whisk until the sauce thickens. Add the tomatoes, olives, salt and pepper and let cook 2 minutes. Pour the sauce on the chicken breast rolls as they are being served.
These light wines are characterised by their simple fruity aromas, the sensation of freshness they leave, and their unassuming structure. They must be consumed young.
