I just use boursin cheese (when I find it on sale) or any of the herb flavored cream cheese (or make your own) I have even used ricotta just make sure to drain very well or you'll have a mess...

Serves:

4-8

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

4 large
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1/2 c
mozzarella cheese shredded (or any kind you like asiago or swiss is my fave)
1/2 lb
bacon, cooked and chopped
8 oz
cream cheese (boursin read my note)
1/4 c
chives
1 large
egg or you can use egg whites or egg beaters
3/4 c
bread crumbs, seasoned

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat ove to 375.
2
Soften cream cheese (or boursin)and mix mozzarella, chives and bacon real good. (I dont use salt as I find the bacon and season bread crumbs is more then you need but adjust accordingly to your own taste.)
3
I take one chicken breast and cut in half so that you open it like a book and then cut that so you have 2 equal parts-do that for the other 4 so you have 8 pieces

I take a large piece of plastic wrap put chicken in between fold the plastic wrap over the chicken and flatten the chicken breast with a meat mallot.
4
Spoon the cheese mixture equally onto all your flattened chicken breasts and then roll up(burrito style)and secure it with a toothpick. Just remember how many toothpicks you use so no ones eating a piece of wood :)
5
Pass the secured chicken breast thru the egg and then thru the bread crumb and place on a pan (I use a small sheet cake type cookie sheet pan)sprayed with pam (I also wrap the pan in foil so clean up is easier)
I sometimes add grated parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs but thats optional)
6
Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 mins to an hour or until lightly browned.
