Remove all flat from chicken breasts and discard.
Carefully cut chicken breast in half with a sharp knife, but do not cut right through (leaving a hinge on 1 side.) Place open chicken breasts between 2 sheets of wax paper and using a mallet or the flat of a cleaver, pound the chicken carefully until about 1/4 inch thickness or less. Set prepared chicken on a plate separated by wax paper and place in the refrigerator.
In a small bowl, combine softened butter, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 1 teaspoon of granulated garlic powder, mix well to blend.
Spread butter mixture on a piece of aluminum foil into a rectangular shape, about 2 inches by 3 inches and place in freezer for about 1/2 hour or until frozen.
When butter is firm, remove from freezer and cut into 6 equal pieces. Place one piece of butter on each chicken breast at one end. Start to roll chicken over butter, then fold in both sides and continue rolling to encase the butter completely. Secure chicken rolls with skewers or round toothpicks.
In a bowl, beat egg with water until fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed and 1/2 cup flour.
In another bowl, add the dried bread crumbs.
Coat chicken rolls with seasoned flour. Now dip chicken rolls in egg mixture, then dip and coat with bread crumbs.
Place coated chicken in a shallow dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to chill or longer if desired.
Add 2 cups of vegetable oil or olive oil into a frying pan and heat to medium-high heat.
Carefully place chicken rolls into heated oil and fry for about 5 minutes on each side or until done and golden brown. To test for doneness, cut into 1 rolled chicken to make sure there is no pink showing.
Serve immediatley, garnished with lemon twists and parsley.
