Cheesy Chicken Roll-Ups Recipe

Until I served my family these slightly spicy chicken breasts, they never cared for white meat. Now they prefer them to dark meat...and to just about anything I make!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 block (6 ounces) cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup crushed cheddar cheese crackers (about 2 cups whole crackers)
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. Pound chicken breasts to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut cheese into eight 3-1/2-in. x 3/4-in. sticks. Place one cheese stick in the center of each chicken breast. Fold long sides over cheese; fold ends up and secure with a toothpick if necessary.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine crackers and taco seasoning. Dip chicken in butter, then roll in crumb mixture. Place, seam side down, in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 3. Cover and bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Yield: 8 servings.
