This is a dish to serve guests--be ready to impress! Good enough to be served at a high-priced restaurant, but easy enough to make yourself. Creamy mozzarella and roasted red peppers make the dish really special. Serve over pasta with Alfredo sauce.

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice a chicken breast in half lengthwise, leaving the halves attached on one side: opened and laid flat, the chicken breast should resemble a butterfly. Place between two sheets of plastic wrap, and pound flat. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.

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

  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Set oven to broil, and continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, slice to display the colorful filling, and serve.

This was great! I did add some spices to the tops of the chicken breasts. I added garlic powder pepper red pepper flakes and some rosemary leaves. It really was a great dish and definitely one that will impress dinner guests. I served it with linguine noodles mixed with olive oil salt pepper red pepper flakes rosemary and garlic which was a great complement to the flavors of the chicken. Thanks! Read More

This recipe is good. As stated by a previous reviewer you will be doing a bit of prep work but it will be worth it. I agree that the chicken should be baked and then broiled to be crispy on the outside (if that is what you like). I agree about sliced cheese versus shredded. I agree that roast red peppers add a great flavor. Next time I will experiment by adding some spinach or asparagus which may add to the elegance of this dish. 7/17/07 I did add the asparagus to the chicken for a dinner party and it was delicious. It was so pretty to see the red white and green inside the chicken. I think it needs a sauce over the top though. I will continue to perfect this recipe. Read More

Very nice dish. The flavors all work well together and the presentation is pretty and colorful. I seasoned the breasts with salt and pepper and didn't bother mixing the seasonings Parmesan and chives just sprinkled them on the chicken one by one. Just a matter of personal taste I guess but the only thing I didn't like about this was the dried Italian seasoning which I found unpleasantly harsh. I would have much preferred fresh even if it meant choosing only one herb to save on cost--fresh basil for instance would be wonderful! Loved the addition of the roasted red pepper. I made this easy on myself by baking this at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes which browned the chicken beautifully. I served this with fresh asparagus and "Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts " also from this site. Read More

This is a definite 5 star recipe. I added marinated artichokes w/ the filling (which added even more flavor) and I put italian dressing over the chicken instead of olive oil. I will make this chicken dish again! Read More

So flavorful! Make sure you don't overcook. I thought it tasted best when the red bell peppers were in every bite not spaced out inside the chicken. Read More

Love this chicken recipe! The description is correct. I made this for mother's day dinner and the family commented it looked like something we could have ordered in a high end restaurant. I served over a simple wild mushroom and artichoke risotto. Easy to make. I used an italian blend of cheeses instead of mozzarella still was excellent. I will be making this again and again!
