Italian Chicken Rollups

These were excellent and didn't take long to make. I added fresh garlic and Italian herbs to plain tomato sauce, since that was what I had on hand.

4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 teaspoon dried basil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
4 (1 - ounce) part-skim mozzarella string cheese sticks
Cooking spray
1 cup garlic-and- herb tomato sauce

1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to ¼-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin.

2. Combine basil, salt, and pepper; sprinkle half of mixture evenly on both sides of chicken.

3. Place 1 string cheese stick across the center of each flattened chicken breast. Roll up chicken, jelly roll fashion, starting with short side. Place chicken rollups, seam sides down, in an 11 x 7 - inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining half of spice mixture, and coat with cooking spray.

4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

5. Pour tomato sauce over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until chicken is done and tomato sauce is thoroughly heated.

Yield: 4 servings.
