Heat oven to 400ºF.
Place chicken, top sides down, on work surface; top with chiles and cheese. Roll up chicken, starting at one short end of each breast; secure with wooden toothpicks.

Remove and discard toothpicks from chicken. Slice chicken. Serve with avocado sauce.
Serve with your favorite hot steamed vegetable to round out the meal.
How to Pound the Chicken Breasts
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.
How to Roast the Chiles
Heat broiler. Place chiles on foil-covered baking sheet. Broil, 4 inches from heat, 7 to 10 min. or until chiles are evenly blackened, turning occasionally. Place in paper bag; close bag. Let stand 20 min. or until chiles are cooled. Remove chiles from bag. Peel away blackened skins with small knife; discard skins. Cut chiles lengthwise in half; remove and discard seeds. Use roasted chiles as directed in recipe.
