Fresh bread crumbs are quick and easy to make. Use slices of any firm-textured coarse country bread—1 or 2 days old is perfect. If the slices are very fresh, lay them on a countertop and leave overnight to dry out. Tear the slices into large pieces (don't bother to remove the crusts), put in a food processor or blender and process, in batches, to the desired texture, from coarse to medium to fine. This recipe is from the Williams-Sonoma Collection Series.

Ingredients:

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh chives

For the chicken:

  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh basil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves,
      each about 6 oz., pounded to 3/8-inch
      thickness
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup fine fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or pecorino
      romano cheese

Directions:

To make the sauce, in a small bowl, stir together the 1/2 cup yogurt, 1 Tbs. mustard and the chives. Let the sauce stand at room temperature to lose its chill while the chicken breasts bake.

To make the chicken, preheat an oven to 400°F. Lightly brush a baking sheet (preferably nonstick) with some of the melted butter.

Sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp. of the basil in the center of 1 chicken breast and season with salt and pepper. Fold in the short ends of the breast about 1/2 inch. Starting at a long side, roll up the breast, enclosing the basil. Repeat with the remaining breasts.

In a shallow bowl, stir together the 1/3 cup yogurt and 1 tsp. mustard. In a shallow dish, stir together the bread crumbs and cheese. Roll each chicken breast in the yogurt mixture and then coat with the crumb mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with the remaining melted butter.

Bake until the coating is golden brown and the chicken shows no sign of pink when cut into the center, about 30 minutes. Serve hot, with a dollop of the sauce on the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Tasty Every recipe I have made from Williams-Sonoma has been excellent, and this is no different. The basil core of this rolled chicken breast made the meal exquisite, with flavor and texture. I used the tenderizer side of my meat hammer, making the chicken that much more tender. Similar to the graphic, I complimented this meal with wild rice pilaf and roasted asparagus. According to my 15 year old daughter, a definite repeater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my go- to recipes I have made this so often over the last 7 years. It's soo simple, and quick, and tasty. I have made this with non fat sour cream and also non fat yoghurt and haven't felt cheated. I'd say it easily turns into a low fat recipe that is very, very tasty.
