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 stuffed chicken roll-up recipe is one of my favorite because it is very tasty and a real crowd pleaser and very flexible too.

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!
- 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
- 2 Skinless Chicken Breast (or 3 Chicken Thighs) – Sliced thinly for rolling
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon Paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon Red Chili Pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon Italian Seasoning or a combination of dried Basil, Oregano, Thyme
- String to tie the chicken
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon Red Chili Flakes
- 2 teaspoon Cornstarch
Note : If you do not like this spicy, remove all the other peppers and stick to the salt and black pepper for seasonings.
- Sun-dried Tomato in oil
- Slightly cooked carrots – cut lengthwise
- Fresh Spinach
- Crumbled Feta Cheese
- Bell Pepper – cut lengthwise
- Hotdog – cut in quarters and lengthwise
- Ham – 1 piece ham for 1 chicken breast
The amount of filling you need depends on how big the chicken breast. The objective is to leave enough room to allow easy rolling of the chicken.
- Bacon, Ham, Turkey cold cuts
- Prepare the Chicken: Slice chicken thinly, like a butterfly cut. Season front and back side of the sliced chicken. Adjust seasonings to your preference.
- Stuff the Chicken: Arrange stuffing in the middle of the sliced chicken. Do not over stuffed as you might have difficulty rolling it.
- If you want to wrap the chicken with bacon strips, this is the time to do it. Wrap sliced chicken with bacon before tieing it.
- Roll and Tie: Roll the chicken then tie it with a string. Set aside the tied chicken for 30 minutes or better yet overnight to allow the chicken to absorb the seasoning.
- Make the Sauce: Mix all ingredients in the pan. Bring to a simmer until it gets thick. Set aside half of the sauce and pour or brush half of the sauce into the chicken and let sit at least 1 hour, overnight recommended.
- Stove Top Method: Pan Sear the Chicken: Heat pan and add 2 the oil (add more as needed). Pan seared the chicken. Do not remove the string. Keep flipping the chicken until all sides and the inside are fully cooked and browned, about 5 minutes each side in low medium heat. Cooking time will depend on how thick the chicken. Adjust cooking time as needed. Set aside to cool.
- Oven Method: Bake: Alternatively, you can bake this at 350F for about 30 – 35 minutes (more or less depending on the size of the chicken breast). The internal temperature should be 165F.
- Serve: Remove from the pan/oven and cut the strings. Cut into circles. Serve with rice, Quinoa, Pesto Pasta, Couscous or any of your favorite salad.
