Herb Stuffed Chicken Roll-Ups

Today was one of those days when I just didn’t have a plan for dinner. However, I always have some boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the freezer and thanks to the beautiful warm weather, my herbs on the back porch are going gangbusters. I decided to combine the herbs with some low-fat cream cheese and Parmesan, pound the chicken breasts thin and make stuffed chicken rolls. They looked fancy and the whole family enjoyed them. I served them with steamed broccoli and some bread. Yum!
