Chicken Chili Rolls and Cheddar Chive Biscuits

This may look hard to do, but it really isn't! In fact, you can whip this dinner up in no time at all. If you don't like spicy food, you could just leave out the green chili all together, but who doesn't like spice and who doesn't need to spice up their life a little? ;)

Chicken Chili Rolls:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 whole green chilis (these are sold in a can ready to go)
4 slices Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/3 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 400.
Place chicken breasts in a large baggie or between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound until they are thin. (You can use a hammer for this if you do not have a meat mallet).
In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs, chili powder, cumin, salt, and garlic powder. Set aside.
Lay out the thin chicken breasts and on top of each breast, place a slice of cheese and a whole green chili (slice the chili down the center to sort of open it up to a flatter chili). Roll each chicken breast up and very carefully dip each rolled breast into the milk and then into the bread crumb mixture. After you take them out of the bread crumb mixture, place them in a baking pan that has been sprayed with Pam.
Bake for 30 minutes.

Cheddar Chive Biscuits
3 Tbsp butter, melted
pinch of salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tube canned biscuits
Cheddar Cheese
Green onions
*You do not need to buy expensive biscuits for this recipe. I used the cheapo store brand and they came out great. I think there are enough cheese and onion flavors to make up for the cheap biscuits ;)

Mix 3 Tbsp melted butter with the pinch of salt and pinch of cayenne pepper. Lay out biscuits on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Brush the tops with the melted butter mixture. On each biscuit place a little bit of cheddar cheese and a few green onions. Fold the biscuits over to shape "half moons". Use a fork to seal the edges as best you can. Follow the directions on the biscuit label for how long to bake them and the correct temperature. ( all the biscuits have different instructions, that's why you have to use the directions on the brand you buy. After they are cooked, brush the tops with more butter.
