Italian-style chicken rollups

I got this delicious recipe from Kraft with some modifications. It is so delicious and it is another "in-law approved" meal! Thanks to my father-in-law for helping me learn the ins and outs of pounding chicken!

This is how I made it (yeah, a little heavy on the cheese. I love cheese!):

8 ounces (1 package) cream cheese
1 green bell pepper, chopped into small pieces
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4'' thickness
8 cheese slices
1 cup spaghetti sauce 

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix together the green bell pepper and cream cheese, and set aside.

Top each chicken breast with a piece of sliced cheese and spoon 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture on top of that. Roll up the chicken and place, with the seam down, on a 13 x 9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Top the chicken with spaghetti sauce. Cover baking dish with foil.

Bake 20 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove foil and top each piece of chicken with the remaining cheese. Bake uncovered 3-5 more minutes, until cheese is melted.

I made rice to go with this with some more bell pepper mixed in, and we had the chicken pieces over the rice. It was delicious!
