With little more than your favorite spaghetti sauce (we used a sauce made with cream and vodka – from the Whole Foods Market), cream cheese and a shredded Italian cheese blend, you can have yourself some chicken roll-ups. They are super easy to prepare.
Here is what you will need:
2 oz. of cream cheese softened
¼ cup bell pepper; diced (red, yellow, orange, green, use all colors, or your choice – we buy tri-colored frozen bell peppers)
¼ tsp. garlic powder
4 chicken breasts; boneless skinless
1 cup Italian 5-cheese blend, finely shredded
½ teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 cup spaghetti sauce (your favorite)
salt to taste, optional
Heat oven to 400°
When we salt in our recipes, it is always use Himalayan salt.
After you mix up the ingredients, set aside.
Cut chicken long ways across breast. Place each cut chicken piece one at a time in a large plastic bag, seal it and with a rubber mallet or rolling pin flatten chicken to ¼-inch thicknesses.
At one end of chicken strip roll up with cheese mixture, tucking in ends around filling to completely enclose the filling.
Place seam sides down in 13 x 19 inch baking dish coated with olive oil. Pour spaghetti sauce evenly over chicken, and cover with aluminum foil.
Remove foil, sprinkle chicken with remaining ½ cup shredded cheese. Bake an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
