LOW CARB ROULADE
I have almost an obsession with roulades as I have many in my collection. As well as this spinach chicken roulade I have a simple but delicious Cajun spiced chicken breast which is as simple as pounding the chicken flat, slathering a buttery spice over it, rolling it up and roasting it. It’s still one of the Chief Taster’s favourite and a good choice as it’s effortless to make.
There’s something about pounding a chicken breast flat before stuffing and rolling it that is very therapeutic. All the tensions of the day can be taken out in flattening dinner!
Chicken Roulade Cooking Tips
- The chicken breast could be dipped in a beaten egg mixture then rolled in grated Parmesan cheese before baking for a crunchy coating.
- You could add other ingredients to the filling of the chicken roulade such as chopped black olives or sun-dried tomatoes.
- If you don’t have Feta cheese, a cream cheese, goats cheese or a ricotta will work. Try home made Boursin Cheese too.
