This post has been a long time coming in a couple ways. First of all, these pictures have just been sitting on my computer (in my "Food" folder) for months, waiting to be posted! I actually have a quite a buildup of recipes just clamoring to be shared. The second way this is overdue, is that I haven't posted in a bit. I got super busy over last week, and then (as most of you know) there was that whole Hurricane Irene mess this weekend. We're fine, we didn't lose power or anything, but I was a little worried and was taking some precautions. Now that all of that is done this recipe can finally be shared! Yay! These are a very cool, new way to make chicken that is creative and just gosh darn yummy!
Garlic Cheese Chicken Roll-Ups
Adapted from Taste and Tell
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets (thin-that amounts to about 1 lb. or so)
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- about 3 oz. garlic cheese spread (I used the wedges from The Laughing Cow--whom I do not endorse, yadda yadda. You can substitute and play with this part of the recipe)
- In a shallow bowl/dish mix breadcrumbs and Parmesan.
- Dip 1 side of chicken in melted butter and then the breadcrumb mixture.
- On bare side of chicken, smear garlic cheese on each end (and some in the middle if you want...use your judgement)
- Roll up each chicken breast and secure with toothpick(s)
- Place roll-ups in greased 9 x 13 baking dish and drizzle with any remaining butter.
- Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 35 minutes.
