FULL INSTRUCTIONS WITH STEPS FOR STUFFED CHICKEN ROLL UPS 

First Step: Prepare Ingredients

Start by gathering your chicken breasts, mozzarella cheese, frozen spinach, and your choice of seasoning. This step sets the stage for a seamless cooking process.

At the same time, preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Second Step: Butterfly and Pound Your Chicken

To ensure even cooking, carefully butterfly the chicken breasts, creating a flat surface. Then, gently pound them to an even thickness. This not only tenderizes the chicken but also helps roll it up later.

Third Step: Fill and Roll

Layer mozzarella cheese and spinach on each chicken breast. Roll up and secure with a toothpick if you need to. Combining the creamy mozzarella and vibrant spinach creates a flavorful, cheesy center that will delight your taste buds.

Fifth Step: Cover and Bake

Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and bake in the oven preheated for 45 minutes. It allows the chicken to cook gently while absorbing all the delicious flavors of cheese and spinach. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.

Serve with freshly chopped parsley or broccoli sprouts over cooked rice.

TRICKS AND TIPS:

  • Season your chicken with salt and pepper, dehydrated garlic, garlic powder, mushroom powder, panko or your favorite seasoning blend for added flavor.
  • If you have leftover shredded chicken or cooked chicken (such as rotisserie chicken), it can be diced and used as a shortcut, saving you even more time.
  • For a delightful twist, consider adding sautéed peppers and onion, a slice of ham or prosciutto to the filling.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Side Dishes To Go With Chicken roll-Ups?

You can enjoy cheese chicken rollups with different sides. Try roasted broccoli, baked riced cauliflower or coconut cauli rice for a healthy choice, spicy asian cucumber salad, fresh salad for a light contrast, or creamy garlic mashed potatoes for comfort. A roasted beet salad is so refreshing, and a perfect match for extra flavor.

Can I Swap Mozzarella with Cream Cheese, Parmesan or Sargento Cheddar?

Yes, you can change mozzarella for other cheeses. Cream cheese is smooth and tangy, giving a nice twist. Parmesan cheese adds a rich, nutty flavor. Sargento Cheddar brings a bold, cheesy taste. Experiment with provolone Italian cheese or these cheeses to make your chicken roll-ups the way you like.

Crispy Bread Crumbs Sprinkle

The crispy breadcrumbs on top of the chicken roll-ups add a satisfying crunch, and you can try that option. They make each bite more exciting and tasty. These golden crumbs give a nice texture and a subtle nutty taste, making your meal even better.

Speaking of breadcrumbs, I add them wherever possible for that additional twist which makes your meal double delicious like this chicken meatloaf recipe does.

Chicken Gravy Addition

Adding chicken gravy is a simple way to take your meal to the next level of comfort and flavor. Making a quick chicken gravy is easy – you can use the flavorful juices left in the baking dish.

To do this, once your roll-ups are cooked, remove them from the baking dish and set them aside. Then, place the baking dish on the stovetop over low heat. Add a bit of water, chicken soup or broth, and stir to loosen the delicious browned bits from the bottom. Pour this homemade gravy over your chicken, instantly adding a luxurious touch while tying all the delightful flavors together. 

This small yet significant step transforms your meal into a warm and delightful dining experience, making your dinner easy and genuinely satisfying. You can also go with gluten-free Worcestershire sauce or enchilada sauce for a Mexican vibe. 

How Do I Store Chicken Casserole?

Place any leftover chicken casserole in an airtight container and refrigerate it, ensuring freshness for future enjoyment.

How Do I Reheat Roll Up Bake?

When reheating, place the roll-ups in the oven until they are warmed through, preserving their delicious flavors and textures.

Can I Freeze Chicken Roll Ups?

Yes, you can freeze these roll ups for future meals. Wrap them securely in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil before freezing. When you’re ready to enjoy them, thaw them in the refrigerator and follow the baking instructions for a convenient and delicious meal that’s as good as new. You’ll be making this your new favorite weeknight dinner recipe.

  1. Super love Sargento cheddar cheese. It gave the roll-ups a super cheesy flavor. I made the chicken gravy using the juices from the baking dish and it added even more to the flavor of the roll ups. Absolutely delish!
