Ingredients

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) whole green chilies, drained
  • 1 block (4 ounces) Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 245 calories, 11 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 87 mg cholesterol, 402 mg sodium, 6 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 28 g protein.

Directions

  1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Remove seeds from the chilies and cut into eight pieces. Cut cheese into eight 2-1/2-in. x 1/2-in. sticks. Place one cheese stick and one piece of chili in the center of each chicken breast. Fold short sides over and roll up along long sides to enclose filling (secure with toothpick if necessary).

Place, seam side down, in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Remove toothpicks. Serve with taco sauce if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
