Recipe: Southwestern Chicken Roll-Ups

Posted by   + Show Post

          Southwestern Chicken Roll-Ups

                   

    Ths recipe is fast and easy, and I can prepare it in advance for guests. Use toothpicks to secure the chicken before dredging. -CL Reader

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 chicken roll)
  • Calories per serving: 257

Ingredients

  • (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 6 tablespoons (about 3 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 6 tablespoons picante sauce 
  • cilantro sprigs
  • 6 tablespoons Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Top each breast half with 1 tablespoon cheese, 1 tablespoon picante sauce, and 1 cilantro sprig. Roll up jelly-roll fashion, beginning at narrow end.

Dredge chicken rolls in breadcrumbs. Place rolls, seam sides down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; lightly coat rolls with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until chicken is done.

Im not suppose eat ice cream but every now & then I have a spoonful lol

Quoting RobynS:

Mmmm... might have to try this. Will have to make it g-f, but that should be easy enough. I'm not supposed to have cheese or tomato, but a little once in a while won't kill me! ;)

Me too! Ice cream is a tough one. I could buy dairy-free ice cream, but I only know one place that sells it in my area and it's expensive!!
