Rolled Up Chicken Dinner

Can you say YUMMY?? I can & did! My family LOOOOOVED this dinner!! Loved with a capital L-O-V-E-D. It is a little messy to make, but totally worth it! It's dinner all wrapped up in a chicken breast. Stuffed with mashed potatoes, broccoli & cheese! After they're each rolled in panko bread crumbs, they're drizzled with a yummy gravy! Told you it was delicious! I say go for it & take this recipe for a spin!

rolled up chicken dinner:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness
1 1/2 C. prepared mashed potatoes, on the thick side (I used the frozen steamer kind of potatoes that you make in the microwave)
2 C. steamed broccoli, chopped into very small pieces, almost minced
1/2-1 C. shredded cheddar

1. Pound chicken breasts out flat (I used my rolling pin), then place on cookie sheet that's been sprayed with non-stick spray or line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. Spread a thin layer of mashed potatoes on chicken breast, then sprinkle broccoli bits on, then add cheese on top.
3. Fold chicken breast in half (long ways) as much as you can securing with 3-4 toothpicks.

1/2 C. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 beaten egg
1 1/2 C. panko bread crumbs
1 1/2 T. dry ranch dressing mix

4. Mix flour, salt & pepper in one shallow bowl.
5. Put beaten egg in another shallow bowl.
6. Mix panko bread crumbs & ranch dressing mix in 3rd shallow bowl.
7. Dip/roll/sprinkle chicken carefully in flour mixture, then in egg, then in panko bread crumb mix. Use your fingers to spread egg onto chicken & sprinkle bread crumbs onto chicken. This will get MESSY & stuff starts falling out, but don't fret, it will taste wonderful regardless!
8. After you've dipped/rolled/sprinkled your chicken rolls in the 3 mixtures, place back on cookie sheet lined w parchment paper (or sprayed with non-stick spray). Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

1 can cream of chicken soup
1 C. milk
approx. 1/4-1/2 C. finely chopped broccoli (whatever is left from filling the chicken rolls)
2 dollops of sour cream (optional....I just added it to thicken up my sauce).

1. Heat soup, milk, chopped broccoli (& sour cream if you want) in a small sauce pan until warmed. Pour spoonfuls of sauce over each chicken roll before you serve.

MMMMMMMM! Sooooo good! Butter a roll, toss a salad and WALLA, you've gotta a dinner from heaven my friends! Let me know if you loved this dish as much as we did.


  1. Yum! Can't wait to try the new posts! I was needing some ideas for next week's menu. Thanks!!

  2. Ok -Just made this today and loved it - I had to substitute ritz cracker crumbs for the panko bread crumbs and it was still de-lish. Whatcha got for this week? :)
