Hello and welcome to solsarin. This post is about “rolled stuffed chicken breast recipes“.

Chicken as food

Chicken is the most common type of poultry in the world.[1] Owing to the relative ease and low cost of raising chickens—in comparison to mammals such as cattle or hogs—chicken meat (commonly called just “chicken”) and chicken eggs have become prevalent in numerous cuisines.

Chicken can be prepared in a vast range of ways, including baking, grilling, barbecuing, frying, and boiling. Since the latter half of the 20th century, prepared chicken has become a staple of fast food. Chicken is sometimes cited as being more healthful than red meat, with lower concentrations of cholesterol and saturated fat.[2]

The poultry farming industry that accounts for chicken production takes on a range of forms across different parts of the world. In developed countries, chickens are typically subject to intensive farming methods while less-developed areas raise chickens using more traditional farming techniques. The United Nations estimates there to be 19 billion chickens on Earth today, making them outnumber humans more than two to one.[3]

EASY BAKED STUFFED ROLLED CHICKEN

Fresh spinach, some bacon, cream cheese (instead of ricotta – picky people here), a little salt and Parmesan, all rolled into flattened chicken breast, breaded and tossed in the oven. I topped with some marinara and then sprinkled it with mozzarella cheese. Simple!

PREP TIME20 minutes
COOK TIME30 minutes
TOTAL TIME50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 4oz. chicken breast, flattened to 1/4 inch thickness
  • 4-5 pieces bacon
  • 12 oz. spinach, stemmed
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups marinara sauce, store bought or homemade
  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs (regular or Italian style)

Instructions

    1. Preparation: Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Cover the bottom of a casserole pan with non-stick spray. Season both sides of flattened chicken with salt and pepper.
    2. Place bacon in skillet over medium heat and cook until crisp. Remove bacon. Set aside 15-20 large spinach leaves, add the remaining spinach into skillet and stir until slightly wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
    3. Transfer wilted spinach into a food processor bowl and add in cream cheese, parmesan, bacon and salt Process mixture until just smooth.
    4. Place reserved spinach onto chicken and place 2 tablespoons of mixture on top and spread to an even thin layer. Roll up chicken, dip it in egg white and roll it in bread crumbs. Transfer chicken rolls seam side down to casserole pan. Bake for about 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven. Layer with marinara sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella. Transfer casserole pan back to oven and broil for 2-3 minutes or until cheese melts.

**Notes** (1) You can use frozen spinach, but it’s more of a hassle as you’ll need to thaw and drain it well. (2) Optionally, you can skip the bacon, but it adds a lot of flavor so try not to. (3) You can also skip the breading. If you use the breading and see that it still dry prior to adding the marinara, just melt some butter and brush it right on the bread crumbs and it will crisp up.

Cheese and Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Ingredients

  • Chicken – We’re using skinless and boneless chicken breast today as it’ll provide enough surface area to roll up our stuffed chicken parcels.
  • Cream cheese – Spreadable garlic and herb cream cheese, plain cream cheese would work just as well.
  • Prosciutto – We need just 4 thin slices of this cured meat today.
  • Sun dried tomatoes – Chop them up and be sure to pick up some in the jar that’s packed in oil.
  • Basil – I used fresh basil leaves here.
  • Olive oil – We want a nice neutral tasting oil to cook our chicken in.
  • Seasoning – Salt and pepper to taste.

How To Make Cheese and Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken Breasts

  1. Preheat oven: To 450 F degrees.
  2. Prepare the chicken: Flatten the chicken breasts using a meat mallet to pound them until they are about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch in thickness.
  3. Assemble the chicken breasts: Spread 1/2 of the cream cheese on each chicken breast. Top with basil leaves, then 2 slices of prosciutto on each breast and a tbsp of chopped sun-dried tomatoes on each breast. Carefully roll up the breasts and secure with toothpicks. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook the chicken: Heat the olive oil in an oven proof skillet and brown the chicken, placing first with seam side down until just slightly golden brown. You may need to remove toothpicks to brown on all sides. Place skillet in oven and bake chicken for an additional 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Finish the dish: Remove chicken from skillet onto a cutting board, discard toothpicks and wait about 15 minutes before slicing each chicken breast. To double the recipe simply double all the ingredients.
