Tabitha’s Stuffed Chicken Rolls

Posted by Tabitha Klausen on

This is a quick and easy recipe that is always fun to make and delicious to eat. Eating plain chicken breasts can be extremely boring, so I experimented in ways to make it more interesting and taste amazing. Rolling the chicken breast for the first time can be the tricky part, but once you have done it a couple of times it becomes easy. I recently found that the combination of Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses is incredible, and if used moderately in this recipe, can be enjoyed without guilt. Give (my) Tabitha's stuffed chicken rolls a try and let us know how yours came out! For a lighter option, skip the cheese and add tomato or salsa. I like to serve this dish with brown rice and a veggie. It is also good over gluten free pasta, or by itself! Ingredients:
  • 1 lb organic chicken breasts
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Cracked peppercorn
  • Paprika
  • Wooden toothpicks
Cooking Instructions:
  • Start by butterflying the chicken breasts so they are easier to stuff and roll
  • Place breasts on greased cookie sheet
  • Wash and dry spinach leaves and remove the stems
  • Place a thin layer of spinach on chicken breast
  • Next, sprinkle a small amount of both Parmesan and mozzarella cheese onto spinach layer. You don't need to overdo it with the cheese because a little goes a long way
  • Gently and carefully roll the breast up making sure ingredients stay inside. This may take a couple tries. Once you have it rolled, take your toothpicks and pin the roll in place. I used about 3-4 toothpicks to hold a roll in place
  • Sprinkle garlic, onion, pepper, and paprika on top to taste
  • Cook chicken rolls at 375 for 30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes carefully removing toothpicks. Rolls should keep their shape after toothpicks are removed
