Prep Time : 30 Minutes
Start to Finish : 30 Minutes
4 servings

Ingredients :

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 11/4 lb)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 oz Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup chunky-style salsa

Method :

  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, flatten each chicken breast to 1/4–inch thickness (see Flattening Chicken Breasts). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Cut cheese into 4 slices, about 3 x 1 x 1/4 inch. Place 1 slice cheese in center of each chicken piece. Roll chicken around cheese, folding in sides. Brush chicken rolls with butter.
  3. Place chicken rolls, seam side down, on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook about 15 minutes, turning after 10 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve chicken with salsa.
