Chicken Roll-Ups with Goat Cheese and Arugula

68

Peppery arugula and tangy goat cheese provide the filling for rolled-up chicken cutlets. They look impressive on the plate, but couldn't be easier to make.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, October 2005

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken breast cutlets, (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 large bunch arugula, (about 4 ounces), stems trimmed
  • 3 ounces soft goat cheese, broken into small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Season chicken with salt and pepper. On a clean work surface, lay cutlets flat (smooth sides down). Layer each cutlet with arugula; crumble goat cheese in the center. Starting with the narrow end, roll up chicken tightly; seal with a toothpick.

  2. In a large nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; swirl to coat bottom of pan. Cook, seam side down, until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn chicken.

  3. Transfer skillet to oven. Cook until chicken is opaque throughout, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove toothpicks, and slice chicken crosswise before serving, if desired.

    Really simple delicious recipe! I used chicken tenderloins instead of cutlets and it still turned out great. A couple toothpicks were needed to keep the chicken together. Will definitely make this again!

    I did not like this recipe at all. I found time consuming and the goat cheese overpowered the arugula and everything tastes of old socks. eurk I was very disapointed...

    I tried it with avariety of vegetables on a mashed potato base instead of arogula, because that was a little to sophisticated for my kids too.

    Has anyone tried it with different ingredients? Not sure my kids would like goat cheese and that green stuff! Thanks.
