How To Make Chicken Roulade
Chicken roulades are one of the best ways to do something different with your dinner but with a serious bang. One of our favorite things about chicken roulade is it definitely let’s you be creative with your ingredients. Really, whatever you have on hand works. We’ve seen broccoli cheddar roulades, Greek roulades with spinach, feta and roasted red peppers, Italian roulades with mozzarella, sun dried tomato and Parmesan and many more options. By pounding out the chicken thinly, you’re then able to spread on your fillings, roll it up and pop it in the oven. Just look at that photo! Does that not look absolutely gorgeous?
