Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and spoon 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese onto the center of each chicken breast. Fold in the sides, rolling the chicken around the blue cheese. Secure with wooden picks.
Place the chicken rolls in a baking pan. Bake in 400 F oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is fork tender.
