Baked Chicken Rolls with Cheese and Butter Recipe

These resemble chicken kiev for the part that they are chicken rolls which are stuffed with garlicky butter. But they are much easier to make and are a bit healthier: because of no breading and no deep frying.

Chicken thin cutlets cut works perfectly for this one (if you can buy it), but whole breast can be sliced into cutlets as well, it will just be slightly more work to do to make sure slices are even and there are no holes in the chicken so stuffing doesn’t leak when cooking.

Butter and cheese stuffed chicken rolls taste great when served hot, right out the oven. Good when paired with mashed or baked potatoes. Perfect for romantic or celebratory dinner.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  3. If you use whole chicken breast, you may need to slice them into thinner cutlets or butterfly them before proceeding (I used pre-cut thin cutlets, so I didn’t need to do this); then season each piece with salt and ground black pepper to taste from both sides:

  4. Them using meat tenderizer carefully beat and flatten each piece from both sides (if you beat meat through plastic food wrap folded in couple layers the process will be less messy):

    Repeat for all meat and stuffing:

  6. Warm oven up to 300F. Warm skillet up with a bit of oil. Fry all chicken rolls from all sides until lightly colored. Once meat meeting points are fried over a bit it is safe to remove toothpicks holding them together, gradually remove all toothpicks one by one (but carefully, if roll unrolls, the stuffing will leak out):

Hello Julia,
I enjoy your website a lot. Many of the dishes you have listed remind me my childhood in Ukraine. Those were GOOD times…
I have a question regrading this recipe, and to be more specific it is about the mayo. In the step, when prepping the stuffing, you do not mention to add mayo to it. I thought that the 2 oz of mayo was for the stuffing and the 2 tbs for smearing the rolls before baking them. Could you, please, clarify this for me?
Thank you and please add more dishes to the list!!!! 🙂
