Broccoli Cheese Chicken Rolls

Broccoli Cheese Chicken Rolls

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1.25-1.5 lbs)
2 c. broccoli florets
4 wedges spreadable cheese
1 egg
1/4 c. milk of choice
1/2 c. plain breadcrumbs of choice
1/2 tsp. garlic salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 lemon, juiced
Steam broccoli until tender and then finely chop. In the meantime, slice each piece of chicken in half (not completely through) to form 4 fillets. Pound chicken so you have 4 even pieces no thicker than 1/4″. Spread one cheese wedge on each piece of chicken. Then divide cooked seasoned broccoli evenly among the chicken and sprinkle on top of cheese. Next, roll each fillet up starting with the smallest end first and secure each piece with 2-3 toothpicks. In a dish beat the egg with the milk. In another dish combine breadcrumbs and remaining spices. Dip each chicken roll into the egg wash then the breadcrumbs and place in a baking dish coated with nonstick spray. Drizzle lemon juice evenly over chicken then spray chicken with a generous amount of cooking spray. Bake at 375°F for 45-60 minutes.
