  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.

Oh my gosh, this is one of the best chicken dishes I ever made. My husband was skeptical about the cream cheese until he took his first bite. He was looking for thirds!!!! AWESOME RECIPE!!

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.

Tried this, minus the garlic ingredients, and it was great! Easy enough. Prep time was less than stated, though I did use 'thin sliced' chicken breast skipped the garlic & onions! Also, froze for less than 20 minutes, as I was time starved. Everyone thought I had purchased the chicken, pre- breaded and stuffed, at a local gourmet market!! Really good recipe! Thanks for passing it on!

I came across this recipe one day and had to try it!! I am not the most patient cook so I typically dont like a recipe that has this many steps but it wasnt nearly as bad as it seemed while reading it!! It was a major hit among the people I made it for and definitly plan on making it again!! The best part is that it wasnt a lot of stuff that I had to go shopping for. I had most everything in my kitchen already!!

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 seasoning came off the outside of the chicken breast.

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 only butter rather than butter and oil when I fried the chicken. Firstly, there was way too much "sprinkling" herbs - I only used a quarter of it, if that. I poured the butter from the pan over the chicken before baking it. It needed to be in the oven for 30 minutes and came out nicely. However I think the recipe calls for far too much garlic. I am usually quite insensitive to garlic but this really was too much. Next time I make it I will modify it and use my own herb/spice mixture. A good concept though, with some changes.

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 spread, maybe roasted red pepper?? Delicious! You know it's good when the kids compliment it!
