Southwest Chicken Roll-Ups

I really liked these--the chicken was so moist! Here are the FEW ingredients you need!

4 chicken breast halves (I used fresh--I've found that I'm not the best at baking chicken that's been frozen then thawed--it's too dry)
4-6 T. 1/3 less fat cream cheese (it's about 3 ounces)
4 T. picante sauce
4 cilantro sprigs
1/2 c. Italian bread crumbs.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a chicken breast between two sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap and using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound meat until about 1/4-inch thick.

2. Place a tablespoon of cream cheese and a tablespoon of picante sauce on chicken along with a sprig of cilantro. Roll up chicken starting with narrow end (like a jelly-roll, however you may not be able to fold in the sides).Put 1-2 toothpicks in to hold the chicken in place.

3. Dredge in breadcrumbs and place on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Lightly spray rolls with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is done (I ended up doing mine for about 25 minutes).
