Jazz up grilled chicken breasts with a surprise cheese filling and a peppy salsa topper.

Ingredients

4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
3
oz Cheddar cheese
1
tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1/4
cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 2 Cut cheese into 4 slices, about 3x1x1/4 inch. Place 1 slice cheese in center of each chicken piece. Roll chicken around cheese, folding in sides. Brush chicken rolls with butter.
  • 3 Place chicken rolls, seam sides down, on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook about 15 minutes, turning after 10 minutes, until juice of chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve chicken with salsa.
Tips  

Add a peppery punch to this easy chicken dish by using Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers instead of the Cheddar cheese.
