I feel a little off-base in grading this. We used only the basic idea, but changed to pork tenderloin, hammered to a 1/2 inch and then filled with the filling. We baked, and then served with fettuccine noodles, sauce, and spinach. It is delicious!

- Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and pound each half to a 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Divide the cheese mixture evenly among breast halves. Roll up jelly-roll fashion. Tuck in sides; secure each roll with wooden picks.
