Ricotta and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Roll-Ups

Baked chicken breast rolled with sun-dried tomatoes, ricotta and Parmesan cheese lightly breaded and baked till a golden brown. A wonderful way to dress up plain old chicken breast  for a simple and healthy dinner. Served alongside brown rice and a side salad.

I made a generous portion of the sun-dried tomato and ricotta mixture because in my opinion you can never have too much cheese. Plus this allows a taste of the cheesy filling in every bite. This recipe is for two chicken breast but feel free to double the recipe if you are feeding a family of four.
