Pepper Jack Chicken Rolls

This is Jeremy's favorite meal. I got it off of a cooking segment on the news when we were first married and it's been a keeper ever since. Plus it's really easy!

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 ounces Monterey jack cheese with jalapeƱo peppers
1/2 cup cornflake or dry bread crumbs
Black pepper to taste
Garlic salt to taste
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place chicken between wax paper or plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut cheese into 4 sticks approximately 2 inches long by 1/2 inch thick. Place cheese stick in center of each chicken breast
. Roll chicken around cheese, folding in ends. Secure with string or wooden picks, if necessary.
Mix crumbs with pepper,paprika
, and garlic salt to taste. Dip chicken rolls in melted butter then in seasoned crumbs, turning to coat all surfaces. Place in a baking dish and bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Serve with salsa, black beans and rice, if desired.
