 MMMMM---------------------------SALSA--------------------------------
       5    Vine-ripened tomatoes (about
            1/2 lb seeded and chopped)
     1/2 c  Chopped green onions
     1/2 c  Chopped cilantro sprigs
       2    Cloves garlic, minced
       1 T  Very finely minced ginger
       3 T  White wine vinegar
       2 T  Dark sesame oil
       1 T  Safflower oil
   1 1/2 t  Sugar
       1 t  Asian chile sauce
     1/2 t  Salt
  
   Advance Preparation: Place the whole chiles over a gas burner turned
   to high and roast until blackened on all sides. Place them in a
   plastic or paper bag and close the bag. After 5 minutes, remove the
   chiles and rub off the black skin. Discard the stem, and cut the
   chiles lenghtwise so that each one opens into a flat piece. Discard
   the chiles seeds and ribs. Rinse the chicken breasts with cold water
   and pat dry. Lay the breasts, skin side down, on a work surface and
   sprinkle a single chile on each breast, then add a thin layer of
   shredded Gouda. Tightly roll each breast. Loop 1 or 2 pieces of
   string around each breast and tie it snugly so that the cylinder is
   held closed. In separate containers, set aside the pumpkin seeds and
   olive oil. Combine all the ingredients for the salsa, stir well and
   set aside at room temp. Advance prep. can be done up to 8 hours ahead.
   
   Final cooking steps: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a shallow
   roasting pan with foil, then top the pan with a wire rack that has
   been sprayed with cooking spray. Place the chicken, skin side up on
   the rack. Turn the oven setting to broil, place the chicken about 4
   inches below the heating element and broil chicken until the skin is
   golden. about 4 to 6 minutes. Immediately turn the oven to 400
   degrees. Brush the chicken with olive oil and roast if for about 15
   minutes longer. Chicken is done when juices run clear when pierced
   with a fork. Spoon warmed salsa across 4 dinner plates. Place the
   chicken in the center of salsa, sprinkle with the pumpkin seeds and
   serve at once.
