Italian stuffed chicken roll-ups

Stuffed Italian Chicken Roll-Ups

  • Total Time: 55 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup flour
  • 23 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fresh mushrooms
  • 14.5 oz. diced tomatoes, or two fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. Put one cup of flour in a shallow dish and set aside.
  2. Rinse and dry all produce.
  3. Slice green onion thinly and set aside.
  4. Dice tomato if using fresh and set aside.
  5. Press garlic and set aside.
  6. Slice mushrooms and set aside.
  7. Chop parsley and set aside.
  8. Place boneless skinless chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and beat with a meat tenderizer until thin. (Or cut them in half long ways to make thin pieces of chicken, then flatten if needed.)
  9. Spread each piece of chicken with dijon mustard, sprinkle with Italian seasoning and top with mozzarella cheese slices.
  10. Roll chicken breasts up and fasten with 2-3 toothpicks.
  11. Sprinkle each chicken piece with salt and pepper and roll in the flour.
  12. Heat a pan on medium-high heat and add the olive oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pan). Once the oil is hot, place the chicken in the pan. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, rotating to brown all the sides. (The chicken will continue to cook at a later step).
  13. Remove pan from heat and put the chicken on a plate. Set chicken aside.
  14. In the same pan used for the chicken, add a drizzle of olive oil. Sauté garlic, onions and mushrooms on medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes, until mushrooms are soft.
  15. Add tomatoes and parsley. Stir until the parsley starts to wilt and all is combined, about 1 minute.
  16. Then add the chicken back to the pan, reduce to medium-low heat, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Add a little water if not enough liquid.
  17. Spoon the tomato and mushroom mixture over the chicken and serve.
