Woah, That's a Long Name...stuffed Chicken Breasts

"So, I was going to call this what it is: "Pomegranate-chipotle herbed cheese-stuffed chicken breasts." I thought that was pretty long, but I guess the name I gave it wasn't much shorter.... Oh well. I'm a fan of many of the Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl) ideas and techniques, and I often try to mimic them, using products that she recommends, in my own recipes. This is one of those. I purchased the pomegranate-chipotle sauce (which won't enter correctly in the recipe...) from Tastefully Simple, but I have seen raspberry-chipotle marinade and cherry-chipotle jam and stuff in the supermarket, and I'm sure something like that would work fine as a substitute."

Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, combine the 4 wedges of cheese, chives, oregano, parsley, basil, and garlic (I find that using the back of a fork is easiest).
  • If your cheese wedges are straight from the refrigerator, it helps to microwave them for 10 seconds or so, to soften them up, for easier mixing.
  • Set the small bowl aside.
  • Place a chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap on a clean, dry surface.
  • Using a meat mallet, pound the chicken to about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat with the other chicken breast.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray it lightly with cooking spray.
  • Spread half of the cheese mixture on each chicken breast, and roll them up like a crescent roll.
  • Secure with two toothpicks, if necessary.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked in the center.
  • Take chicken out of the oven once it is done, remove toothpicks (if you used them), and pour 3 Tablespoons sauce or marinade over each chicken "roll" to serve.

I am an active lady, and I am not the top chef in the world, but I can hold my own. I love making things that remind me of when I was little, I love trying out new recipes, and I love learning new things to cook. Most of the recipes I post are recipes I loved that I found online, but that I have tweaked just a bit. I do have some family recipes on here too. I love to bake, probably more than anything else in the kitchen. I love to bike ride. I like to read, travel, kayak (I've only been twice, but I loved it), hike, camp, basically any outdoorsy/active stuff.?
