    Claudia Dawn's Note:

    Butter...Garlic...Cheese? Chicken rolled in all? How can this recipe not be a keeper?!! My sister-in-law gave me this recipe some 25 years ago. It's just as good today as it was then - maybe even better since my garlic tastes have increased over the years as well as my "eye-balling" measurements (meaning more garlic!). Just be sure not to overcook as the chicken will be dry - follow these directions and the chicken will be moist. This is a great prepare ahead meal that will impress.

      Even with having to change this to meet what I had in the house, I'm still giving it five stars because I can see how it would be great as written as well. Here's what I did differently: cheddar instead of Monterey Jack, butter instead of margarine, whole wheat cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs. I also read suzy wonton's review where she added Canadian bacon, so I diced some bacon and put it on top of the cheese before rolling the chicken. With the low carbs and high protein, but such rich taste, this one is definitely a keeper for us!

      I used store bought thin sliced chicken fillets pounded slightly. I was afraid the cooking time may be too long because I only had 6 fillets, but it turned out perfect and so moist! The only problem I had was a lot of the cheese oozed out. I think next time I will use provolone, it doesn’t melt as quick. Yummy recipe!
