This is a quick, easy and tasty meal - my husband's favorite! If you can make ahead and let marinate, it is even better. Roll on up to the stove and make a tasty treat for dinner tonight!

  • Pound chicken breasts until thinned out. In a shallow dish or bowl mix together bread crumbs and cheese. Dip one side of each breast into melted butter or margarine, then into crumb/cheese mixture. Place a dollop of cheese spread at one end of each chicken breast, on the side of the breast not dipped in the mixture. Roll up each breast and secure with toothpicks.

  • Place rollups in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish and drizzle any remaining butter or margarine over all. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until cooked through and juices run clear.

I found this recipe to be absolutely amazing! I followed the recipe exactly but with my own cheese spread. I added together a package of cream cheese dry chives minced garlic garlic powder and onion powder and blended it in the food processor until wonderfully whipped. This is one of the best new recipes I've made in weeks. I highly recommend everyone try this at least once! Read More

I found this to be way too rich for my taste. I did use onion and chive cream cheese and it was just too heavy. I will try again with ham and swiss cheese as the coating was good and it was very quick to make as I used thin sliced boneless chicken breast. Read More

These were outstanding. I was wanting some new recipes for chicken instead of the usual and this was it!!! It was quite rich so if you fix these make sure you don't make any side dishes that are rich themselves or that have garlic in them. Here are a few tips for those who could use them: If you are having trouble finding the garlic cheese spread I found one made by Philidelphia and it is a Garlic and Parmesan cheese cracker spread. They just came out with these and it works really well it should be in the refrigerator isle. I found it in Wal-Mart. For those who don't keep bread crumbs around the house like me you can use crushed crutons. I used some seasoned crutons that we had and crushed them up it adds extra flavor too. Also for those who said that their chicken was bland try marinating your chicken AFTER you have pounded them thin in a bowl of Kraft Zesty Italian dressing it has to be the ZESTY regular Italian doesn't work as well. It's best if you marinate them overnight but even if it's only a few hours it still adds a really great flavor. I 99% of the time marinate my chicken in this dressing first no matter how I fix it. Hope this helps. Thanks for a really great recipe. Read More

These were a HUGE hit. Couldn't find the garlic cheese spread and instead used Roasted Garlic flavor Cream Cheese. Came out fine. These also work well to make ahead and freeze. Read More

This was fantastic. Once I pounded the chicken breast the pieces were pretty big so I only used 2 breats and cut them in half (enough to feed my family of 3). I made my own cream cheese mix with a tablespoon of fresh chopped onion 4 tsp of minced garlic and some fresh chives and parsley into 8oz of cream cheese. I slathered this on the chicken breast rolled and toothpicked and then dipped in butter and breaded. It was delicious!!! I will make it again and again!! Read More

I've used allrecipes for many meals for my family & never have rated any of them. I just made this for my family (did make a few changes) they are picky eaters as in many famly's & they just raved about it. I did make my own filing of cream cheese montery/garlic cheese fresh garlic basil parsley salt pepper & store bought 3 cheese blend. I used town house butter crackers instead of bread crumbs. The best part-:) strips of bacon for a visual. It came out AWESOME!!! I love this site & all the things it has to offer & that we all can exchange our ideas & our own review's from REAL famlies. Thanks again & hope this was useful to some. Read More

Very good chicken dish! The garlic cheese spread is excellent. However there was too much Parmesan / bread crumbs mixture; the amount of Parmesan and bread crumbs should be cut in half. This dish compliments very well the Orange Rice Medley recipe from this website. Overall this is an excellent recipe and I'll definitely make this tasty dish again. Read More

Delicious. Made this for hubby for Valentine's Day dinner. It was nice enough to serve for the special day. I followed the recipe to a T with the exception of adding fresh mozzarella for the last 10 minutes of the baking. (Hubby is a cheese lover and I knew he would love the addition...and he did.) Thanks for the post will definately make again. Read More

Very tasty. Recipe was kind of vague about the pounding out so I made mine about 1/2 inch thick and put the cheese at one end and rolled around it. This made for HUGE rolls so I'll cut the breasts in half next time so they're more manageable. I didn't use packaged spread (is this Boursin or Rondele?) so I mixed up PHiladelphia cream cheese (the brick) with a handful of chives and several garlic cloves in my food processor. A definite keeper. Read More
