Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 (6 ounce) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives

  • 4 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking dish.

  2. Slice a chicken breast in half lengthwise, leaving halves attached on one side. Open breast and lay flat; it should resemble a butterfly. Place between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound flat. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.

  3. Combine Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese, and chives in a bowl; sprinkle over chicken breasts. At one end of each breast, place 3 strips of roasted pepper and top with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese. Roll each breast up, starting on the side with peppers and cheese. Insert a toothpick in each roll to prevent unrolling. Place in the prepared baking dish. Season rolls with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Set oven to broil; continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes.

  5. Remove from the oven, slice to display colorful filling, and serve.
