It's been way to long since I have posted any recipes. We had these chicken rolls the other night and I realized I have never shared them here.
I served fresh beets and beet leaves, which all of my children like to nibble on. They don't particularly like to eat the beets but they like the leaves, and it makes for a pretty presentation. These rolls are one of the more time consuming things I make, which makes the a great choice for freezing!
6 chicken breasts
4 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 Tablespoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 Tablespoon roasted red peppers, chopped
12-18 large spinach leaves
6 ounces thinly sliced deli ham
1 cup seasoned croutons (crumbs)
1 Tablespoon milk
Pound chicken breast to 1/4 inch thick. In a small bowl combine cream cheese, feta cheese, basil, and pepper, blend well.
For each chicken breast cover with spinach leaves, top with a scoop of cheese mixture, sprinkle with red pepper, and cover with two slices of the ham.
Roll up, jelly roll fashion, tucking in the ends when possible. Freeze
Thaw rolls in fridge overnight. Combine milk and egg in one bowl, and bread crumbs in another. Dip each roll in the egg mixture and then coat with crumbs. Place seam side down and bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees of until chicken is no longer pink.
