I baked up a few of these for a dinner party. The guests raved over how great they were. You can't really go wrong with chicken and cheese.

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with the minced garlic, chives, parsley, salt and pepper. Cover with grated cheese.
  3. Roll up and secure with toothpicks so stuffing doesn't fall out.
  4. Heat oil in a medium frying pan. Cook the chicken breasts, turning them, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove and place into a casserole dish
  5. Stir flour into the leftover drippings until smooth. Remove from heat and add sherry, onion powder and chicken broth. Place back on burner. Bring to a boil on medium heat stirring until slightly thickened. Pour over chicken. Cover the dish and place into a heated oven. Bake 30 minutes
  6. Remove from oven and careful remove the toothpicks, a clean pair of needle nose pliers work well. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Can put chicken on top of mashed potatoes and then pour the sauce on. Serve.
