CHICKEN ROLLATINI

8 thin sliced chicken breast cutlets
1 cup garlic-and-herb cheese blend
4 jarred roasted red peppers, cut into strips
nonstick cooking spray
3/4 cup bread crumbs (I prefer 1/2 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs mixed with 1/4 cup panko (Japanese)bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spread 2 tablespoons of the cheese blend on each chicken cutlet. Top cheese blend with red pepper slices. Starting at the short end, roll the chicken up and secure with wooden picks. Coat the chicken with nonstick spray and roll in the bread crumbs. Place chicken rolls, seam side down, in a foil-lined baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken juices run clear.

NOTE: These chicken roll-ups can be frozen after being breaded. To freeze, wrap each roll separately very tightly in plastic wrap, then put into a zip-top freezer bag. Remove from freezer and allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before proceeding to baking instructions.
