Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a saucepan cook poblano pepper, onion and celery in 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat until tender. Stir in parsley, the 1/8 teaspoon Cajun seasoning and the oregano. Set aside.
  • Place each chicken breast half between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, lightly pound each chicken breast half to about 1/4 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap.
  • In a shallow dish combine cornmeal and the 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning. Place egg whites in another dish; beat lightly.
  • For each roll, spread about 1/4 cup of the vegetable mixture near an edge of the chicken breast. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the cheese. Fold in the side edges; roll up from edge with the vegetable mixture.
  • Dip rolls into egg whites and coat with cornmeal mixture. Place rolls, seam side down, in a greased foil-lined shallow baking pan. Coat with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes. Sprinkle chicken with remaining 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Bake about 5 minutes more or or until chicken is no longer pink (170F). To serve, transfer chicken to four serving plates.


Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
Serve with Greens and Couscous and steamed carrot sticks.
