This appetizer is full of chicken and cheese! And is baked to a golden perfection. It’s the perfect starter!

A good chicken and cheese roll is an absolute staple in Russian cuisine. It’s an inviting starter that sets the mood for what will most likely be a great dinner.

Seriously, when I see a chicken and cheese roll being served as an app, I’m excited to see what dinner would be like. But then again, I’d probably be pretty content with a few chicken cheese rolls on my plate, if that’s the only thing I had. 

These things are good.

Here’s the thing though. Outside of Russian cuisine, not many people are too familiar with this. And I want to share this recipe with you. After all, I can’t be selfish and keep this all to myself. It simply wouldn’t be fair. 

What do I love about this dish?

  • I can count the number of ingredients that go in this dish on one hand (minus salt and pepper). Chicken, eggs, mayo, cheese. Easy peasy.
  • The cheese is double baked. Oh my gosh, yes! The shredded cheese is first baked solo on a cookie sheet. When it forms together and becomes one whole piece, it gets baked again with the chicken mixture rolled into it.
  • The presentation! These rolls look so good and are perfect to make for parties!
  • It’s versatile. I kept this pretty simple and seasoned my chicken with salt and pepper. The whole family can enjoy it. But if I’m feeling more adventurous, I’ll maybe add some heat. Or maybe scallions. Perhaps some chopped veggies to mix into the ground chicken.

If you’re looking for a new appetizer to serve, give this easy chicken and cheese roll a go!
