New This Month

    I made this today...had the chicken rollups for lunch and then later made the couscous and microwaved the chicken for dinner with my husband. It did cook all the way through at 10 minutes with my broiler. Just cut one of the smaller ones in half and you can tell if it's cooked through or not. Or use a meat thermometer. I'm having a dinner party later this month, so I wanted to try this out. I will definitely serve them because they're not too expensive, fairly easy to make (and good reheated so I can make them ahead of time). They look very impressive. My husband doesn't like peas, so I made the couscous with corn and it came out good. Oh, and I served this with extra honey mustard dressing, which also helps...

    This looks great, but I just joined Weight Watchers and I cannot calculate how many points this dish would be because you do not provide nutritional information on your recipes. I never noticed this before, hence the membership in WW (lol), but now I need it. Too bad, as it will mean that I have to forego recipes from this site. Come on, Martha, give us the low-down so we WW's can enjoy your recipes, too!

    YUMMY! Made exactly as suggested, using leftover Gruyere I had on hand. I pounded the chicken breast halves since I've never broiled a roll up before, but just as Sarah, it cooked perfectly in 11 min. Didn't have honey mustard so I used Dijon....all the flavors came together so well. Would be great for company dinner. I also made the couscous with peas. Thanks for another winner Sarah! Love your daily recipes and will def make this one again. So quick, easy, delicious, and very little clean up!

    Made this recipe last night, my kids under age 9 enjoy the flavor. It was fast to cook since the breast chicken were thin slices, I used muenster cheese to add flavor. The chicken was cooked on the oven 375degrees for about 15 min. than low broiled temp.for about 7 min. Delicious!!!

    This one goes way back. Just dip in egg w/mustard-roll in bread crumbs w/parm. ch. Add pats of butter on top.Very moist. If you put in toothpicks, (5), to hold together,Slice between them and serve as appetizers.

    This recipe is a keeper. My family loved it. I am always looking for gluten free (this is GF minus the couscous) alternatives to make for dinner. Thank you.

    I was concerned about the center of the roll-up getting cooked via broiling, so I baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then added the cheese slice on top and baked an additional 5 minutes. They came out great! (Another suggestion - before baking, brush the rolls with egg wash and dip in seasoned bread crumbs. The kids loved it!)

    seems the chicken in the center would take longer then 6-10minutes to cook

    I'd add my favorite stand-by-salad dressing, either Italian or Bleu cheese over the top.

    I agree with the posters who said it looked like it was wrapped in dough already. I was looking for the ingredient (pastry dough, phyllo, etc.). If and when I make these, I'll marinate the chicken in some saltwater solution to add moisture to the meat itself prior to assembly. After assembly, I'd brush some olive oil on each roll-up before cooking.
