Chicken Mozzarella Roll ups

Chicken Mozzarella Roll ups (p. 205) From 9 X 13 recipe book via/my sister Misty

2 TBSP olive oil
1/3 c. chopped onion
6 skinless, boneless ckn breast halves
6 mozzarella cheese slices
¾ tsp. garlic pwd
¼ tsp black pepper
3 TBSP dry sherry or chicken broth (I made it without either one)
½ c. fine dry bread crumbs
3 TBSP grated Romano cheese (I used mozzarella)
¾ tsp. dried oregano, crushed
½ tsp. onion salt (I used dried onions)
3 TBSP butter, melted
3 c. purchased tomato=base pasta sauce
Hot cooked fettuccine (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan or baking dish and set aside. In small saucepan heat 1 TBSP of the oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook for 3-5 min or until tender. Set aside.
Place each ckn breast half, boned side down, between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using flat side of a meat mallet and working from the center out, pound each half lightly into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap.
Brush tops of ckn breast halves with remaining 1 TBSP oil. On boned side of each breast half, place a slice of mozzarella cheese and some of the cooked onion.
In a small bowl combine garlic pwd and pepper; sprinkle evenly over cheese and onion on ckn breast halves.
Fold in sides and bottoms of ckn breast halves; roll up each piece into a spiral, pressing edges to seal. Brush ckn rolls with sherry. In a shallow bowl combine bread crumbs, Romano cheese, oregano, and onion salt. Roll ckn roll ups in bread crumb mixture to coat. Place in prepared pan or dish. Drizzle with melted butter (I didn’t do the butter).
Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 min. or until ckn is no longer pink. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan cook and stir the pasta sauce over medium heat until heated through. Serve ckn roll ups with warmed pasta sauce and if desired, hot cooked fettuccine.

I think we will try this one for dinner tonight! Thanks for sharing Misty.
