  • Heat greased grill to medium heat.
  • Place chicken, top sides down, on cutting board; sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  • Blend all remaining ingredients except preserves in blender until smooth; spread onto chicken to within 1/2 inch of sides. Fold in both long sides of each chicken breast, then roll up starting at one short end. Secure with wooden toothpicks.
  • Grill, seam sides down, 18 to 20 min. or until done, turning after 10 min. and brushing with preserves for the last 5 min. Remove and discard toothpicks before serving chicken.

Special Equipment Needed


Prepare using boneless skinless chicken thighs.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with hot cooked rice, pasta or potatoes.

How to Pound Meat

To pound chicken breasts, veal cutlets or tenderize beef, place meat in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag, then pound the meat with the side of a heavy can, rolling pin or meat mallet until meat is the desired thickness. The bag will contain the liquids from the meat, minimizing the mess.
