DIRECTIONS

  • Place each chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap; pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Combine the cheese, onion, cilantro (if using) and 1 teaspoon chili powder in a small bowl.
  • Stuff one quarter of the cheese mixture into each whole chile pepper.
  • Place 1 stuffed pepper on top of each flattened chicken breast; roll up chicken around the chile pepper, folding in sides, and secure with wooden toothpicks, if necessary.
  • Combine egg and milk in a shallow dish.
  • Stir together bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon chili powder and the salt in another shallow dish.
  • Dip the chicken rolls in the milk mixture; dip in the crumb mixture to coat.
  • Place chicken rolls in an ungreased 2-quart square baking dish; bake uncovered in a 375 degree oven about 40 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.
