What Makes This Recipe So Good
- These chicken rollatini are bursting with flavor! The salty and savory prosciutto is paired with super flavorful melted provolone and fresh mozzarella, all wrapped up in tender chicken coated with Italian seasoned breadcrumbs. Seriously amazing!
- This is such a great make-ahead recipe! Prepare the chicken rollatini in advance, place them in a dish, wrap them tightly with plastic wrap, and keep them refrigerated for up to 24 hours until ready to bake. Great to have ready to go for entertaining, or a busy weeknight dinner. And everyone you serve them to will love them, I guarantee you.
- They’re super easy to make! These chicken rollatini are quite impressive for how simple they actually are to make. You only need 7 ingredients, a few bowls, and you’ll pretty much dip, layer, roll and repeat. Doesn’t get any better, easy and incredibly delicious!
- You’ll want to use thin chicken cutlets for this recipe. They’ll roll a lot easier. If you can’t find cutlets, you can use chicken breasts, and slice thru the raw chicken in half, (or thirds if really thick), horizontally lenghtwise to make thin cutlets. You can also pound the chicken flat if it comes out uneven. Add the cutlets to a sealable ziploc bag or wrapped in plastic wrap. Use a meat tenderizer, or the bottom of a small pan to pound them a few times until they’re flat at a uniform thickness.
- Chicken rollatini are great served on their own. But they’re often paired with pasta, a green salad, or a side of veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, or green beans.
- While the cutlets should stay rolled up by themselves if you place them in your baking dish with the seam down, if you find that they’re trying to unroll, you can use a wooden toothpick to keep them closed. To avoid the toothpick to burn while the chicken rollatini are baking in the oven, soak them in water for about 10 minutes before using them.
