6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened
2 C brown/wild rice mix raw cooked and cooled (makes 4 C cooked)
¼ t salt,
dash of pepper
1/4 C olive oil
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 ½ C onion, chopped
1 C chopped mushrooms
½ C flour
1 ¼ C chicken broth
1 ½ C milk
1 t dried thyme
½ t salt
¼ t black pepper
8 oz. low fat cream cheese, softened
1 ¼ C onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 egg, beaten
2 T milk
2 C dried bread crumbs
Step 1: Cook and Cool Rice night before.
Step 2: Saute green pepper, 2nd onion and mushrooms in olive oil until crisp tender.
Add flour and stir and cook until bubbly.
Add broth and milk, stirring constantly until thickened and smooth.
Take off heat and combine rice with this sauce, stir and cool.
Step 3: Saute onion and garlic.
Combine cream cheese and sautéed onion and garlic and blend well to create filling.
Step 4: Divide Cream Cheese mixture among chicken breasts and roll breast up to hold filling.
Dip chicken roll into egg and milk and then into bread crumbs.
Place rice mixture in individual’s 13×9 pan and place chicken rolls on top. (May be easiest to divide rice before starting Step 3.
Thaw and bake with foil covering dish for 40-45 minutes or until the chicken’s internal temperature reaches 165° F. Serve with vegetable and salad of your choice. I separated the meat from the rice to cook. The chicken needed the full time to cook through and the rice needed 25 minutes to reheat. I used a true convection oven at 350 degrees F.
