In a small bowl, stir together the 1/4 cup butter, remaining oregano and parsley. Arrange the pounded chicken breasts skinned side down. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of the butter mixture across each piece about an inch from one of the long sides and place a strip of the Jack cheese over the butter. Fold the short ends over the filling and then fold in the long sides and roll to enclose the filling. Dip each bundle into the 6 tbsp of melted butter, drain and roll in the bread crumb mixture until coated evenly and well. Place bundles, seam side down and slightly separated into a 10x15 inch rimmed baking pan. Drizzle with the remaining butter. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours over overnight. Bake uncovered in a 425 F oven until chicken is no longer pink when slightly slashed (Don't cut the filling!!), about 20 minutes. Serve at once!!

When filling the chicken breasts, place one portion of the chile, atop each strip of cheese. serve the chicken with the following tomatoe sauce.
