Have you ever been in a rut when it comes to what to cook? Ever completely blank out in the middle of the week and had no idea what to whip up for lunch? Or as a side? Been there, done that. In fact, I was just there this past week. I had absolutely no idea what to cook alongside my entree and then it hit me. I had ground chicken thighs in the fridge. I could make a chicken roulade. And that’s exactly what I did. It made the perfect addition to dinner and left us all fulfilled yet somehow wanting for more. I had everything else for it at home too – and that’s always a plus.

What’s Cheese and Chicken roulade anyway?

Think of a swiss roll. But with chicken. A chicken roulade is ground chicken that’s rolled within a pastry. For this recipe, however, I’ve used ground chicken as the filling and baked shredded cheese as the “wrap.” 

You spread the chicken mixture onto the “sheet” of cheese and carefully roll into a log. Bake, slice and serve.

What goes into this chicken roulade?

I’ve kept it pretty simple and only added mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. You could add more if you’d like. Spinach, garlic, or feta cheese would all work very well here, too. 

The layer of cheese consists of mixed shredded cheese, mayonnaise, and eggs. That gets combined and baked for an extra special texture.
