4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup corn flake crumbs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place chicken breasts between sheets of wax paper. Using a wooden mallet or rolling pin, flatten to 1/4 inch thickness.

In small bowl, mix cream cheese, parsley, onion, and lemon juice until blended. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the mixture on each breast. Roll up starting with the narrowest end and tucking in any loose pieces. Coat rolls with flour, dip in egg, then roll in corn flakes.

Place 1/4 inch of oil in a medium-size skillet. Over medium heat, brown chicken rolls a few at a time. Place chicken rolls in a single layer in a baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is fork tender and juices run clear.

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
I loved the crunchy corn flake coating but the filling needed something more. It wasn't all that bland it just seemed like it was kinda pointless since it was so thin. The cream cheese melted so it was more like it was a sauce than a filling. I like Frywitch's idea of adding spinach so I'd recommend doing something like that.

Added a little garlic to the filling. Instead of rolling the chicken I didn't pound it flat but cut a pocket in it instead and put the filling in (more of the filling stays in that way). Good flavor and I liked the crucnhy cornflake coating.

thought this recipe sounded great but wanted a heartier filling. Add finely chopped spinach and a little garlic to the filling. Kids loved it!

Rated a two because the thought of the receipe was a good idea. Cream cheese is a great ingredient, but not in this fashion. I could have took the mixture, minues some onions, and made a poss cracker spread. The mixtures baked with the chicken was sort of bland. The cornflakes though, that was yummy.
