    Serves: 4 

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    • 4 thick slices Jarlsberg cheese
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 110g breadcrumbs
    • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    • 1 clove garlic, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 415ml chicken stock

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Pound the chicken breasts to about 3mm thickness. In a shallow plate or bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs and parsley. Place a slice of cheese on each breast, roll up tightly, then dip into the egg and then the breadcrumb mixture. (Note: Hold roll closed; after dipping, you will see that it begins to stay together).
    3. In a large frying pan, saute garlic in olive oil. Add roll ups and brown quickly, just enough for the chicken to have a crisp outer coating. Remove roll ups from frying pan and drain on kitchen towels.
    4. Pour 1/2 of the chicken stock into a 23x33cm or similar sized baking dish. Add all four roll ups. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, basting once with the remaining stock.

    These were excellent! I wasn't able to find the Jarlsberg cheese at my grocery store so I substituted it with Swiss cheese. I also rolled in a slice of deli ham along with the chesse to add a little variety. Will definately make again!  -  16 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent recipe. I did not use fresh parsley and I added one slice of prosciutto to each roll up. I did not brown the rolls prior to baking. I added 1 clove of crushed garlic to the olive oil and then poured on top of the roll ups prior to baking. Great recipe, paired it with "honey roasted potatoes" from this website.  -  11 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely delicious. Rolling the breasts took some getting used to, but was well worth the effort. Very elegant. I will make again and again!!  -  17 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
