Easy Chicken Rollatini
Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Bake 350°F 25 mins Cook 4 mins


  • 4 thin-sliced chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
  • 8 slices deli smoked turkey (about 1/4 pound)
  • 4 slices provolone cheese, folded in half
  • 8 large fresh basil leaves
  • 4 toothpicks
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Noodles and a vegetable (optional)

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees . Spread chicken cutlets on a cutting board; if you cant find thin-sliced chicken, simply slice 4 thick cutlets in half to form 8 thin cutlets. Save 4 for another use.

2. Place 2 slices smoked turkey on each piece of chicken. Top each with one slice folded provolone cheese and 2 of the basil leaves. Roll up chicken to enclose filling, folding any overlapping edges of turkey over cheese (see tip, at right). Secure closed with toothpicks. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken rolls and brown on all sides, turning, about 4 minutes. Transfer chicken rolls to a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

To serve:

4. Remove toothpicks and cut chicken rolls crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Serve with cooked noodles and a green vegetable, if desired.
