Cooking Spray


Pound chicken to 1/4” thickness; sprinkle with salt, 1/4 tsp basil (I didn't really measure), and crushed red pepper, and garlic powder. Sprinkle each breast with 1 Tbsp. minced bell pepper.


Place 1 cheese stick lengthwise down the center; roll up jelly roll fashion. Brush rolls evenly with Italian dressing. Combine paprika and breadcrumbs, and a dash of oregano and basil; dredge chicken breasts rolls in mixture, turn to coat.


Place on a baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray – seam side down. Lightly coat with non-stick spray; sprinkle with remaining basil.


Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until done (mine took about 22 minutes). Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Questions, Comments & Reviews


These are fabulous! My boysfriend likes more spicy flavors so I added extra crushed red pepper flakes and he admitted that he now has a new favorite dish!

i ruin EVERY meal i make so my boyfriend does all the cooking in our house, but he let me try this chicken dish, and I pulled it off! It was really good, the only thing i recomend is putting a little marinara sauce on top. But anyone can make this dish, and it really comes out to 5.5 points on weight watchers w/o using marinara sauce. But it was wonderful!!!

Made this dish for dinner, except sprayed the breast with low fat butter. It was excellent. Even my picky husband ate it and requested it again.

my mom and I are looking forward to trying this!!! 5 points!!! WOW

This sounds like a great recipe! I'll be trying this one this week sometime. Thanks for sharing!
