    Ingredients
    Makes: 4 rolls

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
    • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • 100g roasted red peppers (from a jar), drained

    Method
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Slice a chicken breast in half lengthways, leaving the halves attached on one side: opened and laid flat, the chicken breast should resemble a butterfly. Place between two sheets of cling film and pound flat. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.
    2. Combine Parmesan cheese, dried Italian herbs and chives; sprinkle over chicken breasts. At one end of each breast, place 3 strips of roasted pepper. Top with 1 tablespoon grated cheese. Roll each breast up, starting on the side with the peppers and cheese. Insert a cocktail stick in each roll to secure. Place in prepared baking dish. Season rolls with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle with olive oil.
    3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Preheat the grill and grill for 5 to 10 minutes. Slice to display the colourful filling and serve.

    This was great! I did add some spices to the tops of the chicken breasts. I added garlic powder, pepper, red pepper flakes and some rosemary leaves. It really was a great dish and definitely one that will impress dinner guests. I served it with linguine noodles mixed with olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, rosemary and garlic, which was a great complement to the flavors of the chicken. Thanks!  -  10 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe is good. As stated by a previous reviewer, you will be doing a bit of prep work but it will be worth it. I agree that the chicken should be baked and then broiled to be crispy on the outside (if that is what you like). I agree about sliced cheese versus shredded. I agree that roast red peppers add a great flavor. Next time I will experiment by adding some spinach or asparagus which may add to the elegance of this dish. 7/17/07 I did add the asparagus to the chicken for a dinner party and it was delicious. It was so pretty to see the red, white and green inside the chicken. I think it needs a sauce over the top though. I will continue to perfect this recipe.  -  08 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
