Are you looking for a new and fun chicken recipe? You are at the right place my friend, this recipe is for you. I am going to show you how I roll! Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll. This chicken recipe is one of my favorite because it is very tasty, a real crowd pleaser and very flexible too. I can make different variations of this recipe by just changing the stuffing.
This goes well with rice, plain of flavored like my Spinach Rice shown in this photo or with Tomato Pasta or Pesto Pasta, or with salad. Another thing I love about this recipe is I can actually prepare it ahead of time and store it in the freezer. Anything that I can prepare ahead of time is a for keeps recipe for me, so this one I am keeping and I am sharing it with you. Let’s get rolling!
