Slice each chicken breast fillet in half lengthways and pound with a mallet to flatten.
Combine the breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of oregano, chilli flakes and a sprinkle of the chopped parsley in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Mix.
Spread half a tablespoon of the crumb mixture over each prepared fillet. Place a strip of red capsicum on one end and roll. Secure with a toothpick. Reserve the remaining herb crumb mixture.
Heat the extra olive oil in a frying pan. Add the chicken and fry until browned on both sides (approximately 1-2 minutes on each side). Remove from heat. If your frying pan/casserole is not oven-safe, make sure you transfer the rolled chicken to an oven-safe baking dish.
Stir the chicken stock, lemon, oregano in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper and pour around the chicken into the baking dish. Slightly smash the garlic cloves and scatter with the remaining pepper strips around the chicken. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the chicken and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Remove and top each rolled chicken with the reserved breadcrumb mixture evenly.
Bake for a further 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Garnish with chopped parsley.
