  1. 4 large boneless-skinless chicken breasts

  2. 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar/jack cheese (I used Kirkland four cheese blend from Costco which is relatively low fat.) half of a

  3. 4 oz. can diced green Anaheim chiles with juice (or more, to taste, note these chiles are not jalapenos)

  4. 1/4 cup light sour cream (not fat free)

  5. 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

  6. 1/8 cup 100% whole wheat bread crumbs, finely crushed Preheat oven to

  7. 375 F. Spray a medium sized flat baking dish with nonstick spray. Pound chicken breasts until they are very thin, about 1/4 inch (see below if you're not sure how to do this). In a bowl with a fork, mash together cheese, chiles with juice, and sour cream until barely combined. Spread

  8. 1/4 of the cheese mixture over each chicken breast, avoiding the very edges. Roll up the chicken, starting with smallest end, and secure each chicken breast with

  9. 2 toothpicks. Combine parmesan cheese and whole wheat bread crumbs on a plate. Roll each chicken breast in cheese/crumbs combination. Place chicken in baking dish and bake about 30 minutes, until the chicken is firm, but not hard, to the touch. I cook this in my toaster oven, and I like to switch to the broiler for 3-5 minutes to brown the top once the chicken is done. To pound chicken breasts: Trim fat and tendons from chicken and place one breast at a time inside a small heavy-duty ziploc bag. Hit with meat mallet or any heavy object you have on hand until chicken is about 1/4 inch in thickness. Don't worry if some pieces of chicken kind of break apart; you can tuck them in when you cook the chicken and it will be fine. Here is the original recipe if you're interested in seeing it.
