Preheat oven to 425°F. Place an oven safe baking dish or skillet in the oven to warm.
Season the flattened chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
With a spoon or butter knife, spread the goat cheese as a thing layer, lightly coating each chicken breast.
Evenly distribute the chopped arugula between the two chicken breasts.
Roll the chicken. Start with the narrowest end and tightly roll each breast, sealing with toothpicks to secure.
Heat olive oil on medium high in a large pan.
Place the chicken roulades in the pan to brown on all sides (about 60 to 90 seconds on each side).
Remove the roulades from the pan and place in the preheated baking dish.
Continue to cook the roulades in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes.
Allow the roulades to rest for at least 5 minutes.
Remove toothpicks, slice, and serve.
