- Pour over chicken in an X-large zipper style bag. Mix to combine.
- Let rest in fridge at least 4 hours, up to over night.
- In medium skillet, heat olive oil then add onion, bell pepper, hot peppers and garlic and cook until softened. Remove from heat.
- In medium bowl, combine crushed crackers, cheese, olives, butter, fresh ground pepper and the onion/pepper mix and combine well.
- Remove chicken pieces from the marinade.
- Add a heaping spoon full of the stuffing mixture onto each piece of chicken and roll up, tucking sides if able.
- Secure with toothpicks of necessary.
- Add a slice of chorizo around each rolled piece of chicken and place in a lightly sprayed 9X13 baking dish.
- Cover with aluminum foil
- Bake at 375 for about 1 hour(breasts may take a lil longer than thighs, so watch carefully)
- I served these with a lil extra Manchego grated over the top, Cajun rice, sliced tomatoes and cilantro.

I made it last night and It was really good. I replaced the Manchego with an Amish Swiss cheese, and it turned out very good.
I do recommend taking a prilosec during the day if you plan on having this dish as the chorizo will produce some hot...morebradkessler in Anderson loved it
