I found this recipe in a magazine. It's an easy company dish, and I can halve it to satisfy a craving for roast chicken without more leftovers than we can ever possibly eat! —Carol Mead, Los Alamos, New Mexico

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a small nonstick skillet, saute the onion, celery and garlic in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. In a large bowl, dissolve bouillon in boiling water. Stir in the bread crumbs, milk, herbs and celery mixture. Set aside.
  2. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread bread crumb mixture over chicken; roll up. Secure with toothpicks.
  3. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes. Melt remaining butter and brush over chicken. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 170°. Discard toothpicks.
