  1. In a cup or small bowl, stir together the Italian seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder. Sprinkle over both sides of the chicken. Place 1 tablespoon of cream cheese on the center of each piece, and spread slightly. Tuck in the sides, and roll up tightly. Secure with toothpicks.
  2. Place the bread crumbs on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Roll the chicken rolls in the bread crumbs to coat. Place on a plate, cover, and freeze for about 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Heat the butter and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken rolls on all sides, this should take about 5 minutes. Transfer the rolls to a baking dish.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear. Spoon drippings from the dish over the rolls before serving.

This was wonderful! I followed the directions exactly. The only thing I would change is doing the entire process of seasoning and stuffing the chicken one portion at a time, otherwise the seas...

This was o.k. No one in my family was too thrilled with it. I followed it to a tee but it was still too much garlic and I love garlic. I doubt I'll make this one again.

I made a few minor changes... I used a Kraft garlic & parmesan [cream cheese] dip in the middle, I used Italian herb mix in place of the Italian seasoning, used plain bread crumbs, and I used on...

Super easy, and my family loved it. I used thin cut chicken breasts, and the oven time only took 15 minutes for super moist chicken! Next time I will venture out and try another flavor cheese sp...

This was delicious. Had everything already and needed a quick dinner without a lot of fuss. Followed the directions exactly and YUMMY. Definate keeper, thanks for the post.

This was a pretty good change, but if I make it again then I'll tweak the recipe some. Maybe using a different kind of cheese, adding some lemon zest...
