Tips

  • Use large, uniform chicken breasts to make it easier to make the filling and roll them.
  • To make the most tender chicken breast, you can marinate it in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and herbs for at least 30 minutes before stuffing and baking.
  • If you find it difficult to roll up the chicken breast, you can use toothpicks to keep it closed.
  • If you prefer a healthier version, you can use low-fat, low-sodium ham and cheese.
  • Make sure the internal temperature of the chicken breasts reaches 75°C before serving to ensure they are safely cooked.
  • To serve, cut the chicken breasts into thick slices and serve with a fresh salad or a side of steamed vegetables.
