Chicken Roll-Up Dinner

I'm moving away from Asian this week into something that feels truly American.  How much more American can you get than mashed potatoes, broccoli, steak, chicken and cheese (we'll ignore the Panko for now).  Eating this felt pretty decedent and not very healthy at all, but since it has broccoli I'm going to go ahead and consider it a healthy meal!

Chicken Roll-Up Dinner

4 Large Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, pounded to an even thinness

1 1/2 Cups Mashed Potatoes (I used instant, but this would be a great way to use leftovers)
3 Cups Steamed Broccoli, finely chopped
1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese (I used reduced fat.  See?  Healthy!)

1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour

1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 Egg, beaten
1 1/2 Cups Panko (found in the Asian and/or baking aisle)
1 1/2 Tbs Ranch Dressing Seasoning Mix (found in the dressing aisle)
10 oz can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Cup Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix flour, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl, place beaten egg in a second shallow bowl and mix panko and ranch seasoning into a third shallow bowl.  My bowls are absolutely not shallow so I had to use plates for the dry ingredients.

Pound chicken breasts relatively thin and spread a thin layer of mashed potatoes over each, then a layer of broccoli, followed by a layer of cheddar cheese.

Carefully roll each chicken breast, securing ends with a  toothpick.

Coat rolled chicken in flour, then egg, then panko mix and place on a baking sheet that's been sprayed with cooking spray or is lined with silpat.  You're going to have some spillage.  I just threw the spillage back into the ends of one of the rolled chicken (making sure it was coated in panko of course). 

Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (try to actually push start on the timer, unlike I did...).  Let rest for 10 minutes before eating.

In the meantime, heat cream of chicken soup, milk and about 1 Cup of broccoli in a small saucepan until warm.  Spoon the sauce over chicken rolls and serve!

Woops!  I forgot to take a pic with the sauce, but you get the *picture*.
