    4 (4 oz.) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    1/8 tsp. salt
    3/4 tsp. dried basil, divided
    1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
    1/4 cup minced green bell pepper
    4 (3/4 oz.) part-skim mozzarella cheese sticks
    2 tablespoons fat-free Italian dressing
    1/8 tsp. paprika

Sprinkle each chicken breast half with 1 tablespoon minced bell pepper. Place 1 cheese stick lengthwise down center. Roll up jelly roll fashion. Brush rolls evenly with Italian dressing.
