My husband, who is generally pessimistic about trying any new recipe, loved this! It was a little tricky getting the chicken to make a nice roll (I had to use extra toothpicks), but it turned out well. I think using smaller chicken pieces is easier, so I recommend cutting the breasts in half or thirds. This also freezes well!

This is a great recipe. It is simple to prepare and yet elegant enough for company. Instead of green chilies, I used jalepenos form my garden. I made this as directed but froze the chicken after baking. After defrosting them overnight, I just reheated and they worked perfectly, This recipe will be another great addition to my OAMC collection, thanks for sharing!
