Italian Chicken/Cheese roll ups
Source of Recipe
Servings: 4 ( 1 rollup) Points: 5
Make these rollups early in the day or the night before. All you’ll have to do is pop them in the oven when you’re ready to feast on tender chicken drenched in marinara sauce and oozing with melted cheese.
List of Ingredients
4 (4-ounce) skinless boneless chicken breast halves
1 tsp. dried basil
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp salt
4 (1-ounce) part-skim mozzarella string cheese sticks
1 cup garlic-and herb tomato sauce (or favorite low point spaghetti sauce)
Place each chicken breast half between 2 slices of heavy-duty plastic wrap, pound to ¼ inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Combine basil, salt, and pepper: sprinkle half of mixture evenly over both sides of chicken. Place 1 string cheese stick across the center of each flattened chicken breast. Roll up chicken jelly roll fashion, starting with short end. Place chicken rollup, seam side down, in an 11x7 inch-baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining half of spice mixture. Cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour tomato sauce over chicken. Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until chicken is done and tomato sauce is thoroughly heated.
