5:30 CHALLENGE: 5 INGREDIENTS, 30 MINUTES
Angie Condra of Acworth gives credit to her husband's cousin Beth McCamy for inspiring her rolled-chicken recipe, which combines cream cheese and roasted red peppers in the filling.
Condra's original recipe used only three ingredients: chicken, cream cheese and roasted peppers. I added other enhancements to boost the filling, incorporating fresh chives and a sprinkle of garlic powder for a little zing. You can substitute other herbs or seasonings as you prefer.
