6-49: Cheese-Glazed Chicken Rolls

I had mentioned in 6-35: Chicken Diable that I had another recipe that I needed to save some of the chicken breasts for–6-49: Cheese-Glazed Chicken Rolls was it. I don’t usually keep chicken breasts around (I think they’re dry and not particularly flavorful), so when I do have them, it’s best to try to knock out as many recipes as possible.

Simply Delicious has a lot of variations of  “light chicken breast dinners”–it was the 1980s. If you’re interested in some of these, check out 6-4: Easy Stuffed Chicken Breasts, the aforementioned 6-35: Chicken Diable, or 6-40: Peppercorn Chicken Breasts.

There’s not a lot to these–they’re essentially exactly as they describe themselves. They’d probably be pretty good for a potluck or a party–you could prep a lot of them beforehand and cook them all at once.

Ingredients. Chicken’s wrapped up after I took two of the six breasts out for 6-35: Chicken Diable. Subbed panko for regular breadcrumbs because I always do.

Pounding out the breasts under plastic wrap. I’m sure the neighbor loves this.

Combined Parmesan, bread crumbs, oregano, etc.

Half the cheese/herb/crumb mixture spread out among the breasts.

Rolled up and covered with the other half. Quarter-size sheet pans are great for stuff like this, and they fit in the toaster oven!

After baking. Looks decent, but nothing super exciting.

I deviated from the prescribed “X” cheese pattern and went with more of a diagonal “=” cheese pattern. I feel like you get more cheese-to-chicken coverage with this method.

Toaster oven does a pretty good broil/melt in 5 minutes, I might have left it in a few minutes longer if I did it again to get a little more browning on the cheese.

Final plated shot. Like I said earlier, I think these would be good prepared in bulk for a party, but they’re not bad for lunch or dinner either. They’re pretty tame on their own, but you could add a spicy sauce or some extras in the filling/seasoning to spice it up if you wanted.
