By John Crowley

Ingredients
  • 4 small skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 12 ounces total)

  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped (about 1/2 cup)

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, oregano, or basil, crushed

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper Nonstick spray coating

  • 1 beaten egg white

Directions
  1. Place each chicken piece between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap. Top chicken with the tomato, Parmesan cheese, the 1/4 teaspoon herb, and the pepper. Fold in long sides of chicken; roll into a spiral. Secure with wooden toothpicks. Spray a 2-quart square baking dish with nonstick coating. Set aside. In a shallow dish combine the egg white and water. In another shallow dish combine the cornflake crumbs and the 1/2 teaspoon herb. Dip each roll into the egg mixture, then roll in crumb mixture to coat. Place rolls in prepared dish. Bake in a 400 degree F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Remove toothpicks. If desired, slice rolls; serve with spaghetti sauce over pasta. Make-Ahead Tip: Prepare and coat chicken rolls as directed; place in baking dish. Cover and chill for up to 12 hours. To serve, bake as directed. Serves 4.

this is an unusual way to fix the chicken, and I can't wait to try it! thanks for sharing… I am hoping these will be great for lunch, like hot little tasty bites on a huge salad and a side of that lemonade that I have seen you posted. Take care.
