Spinach & Cheese Chicken Roulade



4 Chicken Breats- pounded boneless skinless

1 box spinach

3 garlic cloves – grated

1 1/2 cup of shredded cheese ( particularly a good melting cheese) * I used Kerry Gold reserve cheddar. But you can use gruyere, sharp white cheddar, goat cheese mozzarella etc.



1 ½ cup Butter- partially melted – I use Kerry gold butter

Cooking String



Step 1:

Take your chicken and one at a time place in a plastic bag, to pound out and flatten the chicken to ½ inch thick. This helps with cooking the chicken evenly but also helps when rolling it up.

Step 2:

In a saucepan on medium low heat with olive oil heat the pan and add the entire container of spinach. Sautee for 2 minutes add the grated garlic. Continue until the spinach is completely wilted down which takes about 5 min.

Step 3:

One at a time take a piece of chicken and in the center of the pounded chicken add a bit of spinach and a bit of cheese. From the smaller end start to roll the chicken up. Place a piece of rosemary on the top of the chicken and with the cooking string secure the chicken and rosemary in place. I pick up the chicken quick and place the chicken on top of the middle of the string piece and then do a double knot and then cut the string if too much is hanging on the side.

Step 4:

Take the partially melted butter and with a cooking brush or your fingers spread butter all the chicken. Then season with salt and pepper.

Step 5:

In the same pan you cooked the spinach in add a tbsp of butter  or more olive oil and heat on medium high heat for 1 minute.

Step 6:

Once the pan is hot place the first piece of chicken in and sear until crispy or brown, about 4 minutes. Then flip to the other side and cook for another 4.

Step 7:

While the chicken cooks continue making the rest of the chicken roll ups.

Step 8:

Once the chickens are done, place them in an oven safe dish and turn the oven on, 450 degrees. While the oven is heating, it allows your chicken a couple minutes to rest.

Step 9:

Cook the chicken for 6 min then take it out, cover with Reynolds wrap and let rest for 3 minutes.

Step 10:

Once rested, cut string off of each chicken and slice it up and serve.

Roulade recipe

This Spinach & Cheese Chicken Roulade is a perfect dish for 2, 4, 6 or even more people because it makes a lot. I like to cook this over the holidays instead of cooking a whole turkey sometimes as it saves time and it’s just as good.

*Bonus you can prep this the morning of or night before and stick it in the fridge until you are ready to cook.

Also if you’re trying to impress a special someone, this is the perfect date night dish.

love, becca
