    BecR's Note:

    A romantic & delectable dinner for two! Serve vineyard-style with a crusty baguette for mopping the juices--you may want to double the sauce, it's so good. May be frozen, at the stuffed stage, which makes this a great make-ahead dish. I usually keep several on hand in the freezer. Note: You could easily sub cream cheese, feta or chevre cheese for the boursin, and add your own favorite fresh or dry herbs.

      Roll up the chicken breasts jelly-roll style, starting with the narrow end and roll firmly, tucking in ends to form a neat roll.

    8. 8
      Arrange the tomatoes, haricots verts, and shallots around the chicken.

      Delicious! made it on the fly last night even cooked it in the BBQ (I used the fry pan that I had cooked the bacon in as my dish, I did watch the heat on the BBQ I have a Webber and set the grills on the opposite of the pan on) and it was still YUMMY! Yummy is a great way to describe the taste, the sauce is rich in flavour but not heavy. I am sending the recipe to my daughter this morning: easy way to have a dinner party, spend time with your guests and look like a culinary STAR <br/>Thanks Food.com you did it again :)
