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.

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.

When you search recipes, sometimes it also offers the "menu" for a dish as it does in the case of this recipe. The other dish is Butternut Squash Risotto.

Looks like risotto and some form of mango. I have made this with feta and spinach and roasted red peppers and it is GREAT! Also if you do not want to roll it up you can make a slice/pocket in the chicken and bake...

In looking at the photo, I am only guessing, but it does look like a pasta. How about pasta in a light cream sauce with garlic and parmasean? I think that would compliment this dish beautifully.

It looks to me like some kind of pasta is next to the chicken. I'd almost say mac and cheese, which doesn't sound appetizing to me with this dish, but it could be a pasta salad...? I will make this with Laughing Cow Light cheese. It's perfect for this kind of dish, and it tastes great. I use the low fat type which is still so rich and flavorful. It will go great with the fresh arugula. I use Laughing Cow wherever a soft cheese is needed...be it cream cheese, goat cheese or whatever.

I believe what they mean by "goat cheese" is Chevre. It has sort of a soft feta consistency. It is hard enough to crumble yet soft enough to spread. It has a very destinctive flavor, but I don't know if that is because of the goat's milk or the way the cheese is made.

It would be nice if recipes that call for 'goat cheese' would be a little more specific on what TYPE of goat cheese. I make all of my own cheese from our goat milk. There are MANY types of goat cheese!! Does this cheese melt? If not, a simple vinegar cheese is what I need, but if so, should it be a feta type? Or?????
