Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

I made this recipe for the first time last night and it was pretty good! I used less cheese (one small spoonful) inside each chicken breast and it seemed like enough. I served this along with green beans & mashed potatoes.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Serves 4

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup dried, seasoned bread crumbs (I used Italian Bread Crumbs)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted (I used less)
1 (7 ounce) package garlic cheese spread (I used Alouette Garlic & Herb)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pound chicken breasts until thinned out. In a shallow dish or bowl mix together bread crumbs and cheese. Dip one side of each breast into melted butter, then into crumb/cheese mixture. Place a dollop of cheese spread at one end of each chicken breast, on the side of the breast not dipped in the mixture. Roll up each breast and secure with toothpicks.Place rollups in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish and drizzle any remaining butter over all. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until cooked through and juices run clear.

  1. Tried this tonight - it was excellent. I used a light Alouette Garlic & Herb, and used homemade whole wheat bread crumbs. My husband and daughter liked it, too.
