Chicken Rollatini Stuffed with Zucchini and Mozzarella



Shredded zucchini, garlic and mozzarella cheese rolled in chicken cutlets, then dipped in oil and fresh lemon juice, breaded and baked to perfection!

A wonderful way to use up end of summer zucchini and your family will love this, even the non-vegetable lovers!!



I've listed the nutritional info for one, I first made this last week without photos and enjoyed one with a side of rice and vegetables and I felt very satisfied. Today I remade this for lunch and had a hard time finishing two with a fresh garden salad on the side.

Calories: 171.9 • Fat: 6.3 g • Protein: 20.3 g • Carb: 7.9 g • Fiber: 0.9 g • Sugar: 1.3 g Sodium: 280.7 mg (without salt) 


Ingredients:
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups (1 medium) zucchini, shredded
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Romano cheese (or parmesan)
  • 3 oz part skim shredded mozzarella
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 thin chicken cutlets, 3 oz each
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • olive oil non-stick spray 

Directions:

Wash and dry cutlets, season with salt and pepper.  Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.

In a large skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat. When hot saute the garlic 1 minute, or until golden. Add zucchini, 1/4 cup Romano cheese, salt and pepper and saute about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool. When cool, add mozzarella cheese and mix to combine.

Lay chicken cutlets down on a working surface and spread 3 tbsp of zucchini-cheese mixture on each cutlet. Loosely roll each one and keep seam side down.

Combine breadcrumbs and remaining 2 tbsp of Romano cheese in one bowl; in a second bowl combine olive oil, lemon juice, and pepper.

Dip chicken in lemon-oil mixture, then in breadcrumbs and place seam side down in a baking dish (no toothpicks needed). Repeat with the remaining chicken. When finished, lightly spraywith oil spray.

Bake 25 - 30 minutes. Serve immediately. Serving size is listed as one, but if you are having this as a low carb meal with a salad, I suggest you have two.

  2. These look amazing! Do you think they'd freeze ok after they're cooked? And how do they reheat?

    ReplyDelete
  3. WOW, this looks amazing. Your pictures are beautiful! I love chicken wrapped or stuffed with yummy things! I'll have to make these real soon. Thanks!

  4. I will be making these tomorrow night! They look YUM :)

  5. This looks really good.I would probably use broccoli instead of the zucchini since my family is not a fan of it. You could also change up the cheese and use a lower fat cheddar instead of the mozzarella.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'll be making it tomorrow too. We grow the zucchini and I always look for new ways to use it. This sounds so tasty.

  10. Gina this is just what I was looking for!! I have been searching on my phone browser for chicken ideas. Any thoughts of creating an IPhone App for your site? It would be a great time saver. Thanks for the amazing recipes!

  12. I'm making this tonight! I stumbled onto your blog via a facebook post and I've been making the recipes ever since. I'm not even on WW...but healthier is always better, and your recipes are delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Thanks for posting this on FB! I had all the ingredients so tried it tonight for dinner... and it was DIVINE! THANK YOU!! Definitely a keeper. Love that you have these great recipes for us WW chicks!!!

  14. hi these look amazing but what would you substitute the cheese with if you dont eat meat and dairy together?

  16. This looks wonderful!!! I bookmarked it and can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!

  17. Blulena- I think they would freeze ok, I would under-bake them, maybe half way. Then re-back them to heat them up.

    Terri- It's on my mind.

    Alison- Great! I'd like to think I'm not just for WW.

    Kari- So glad you made this so quickly!

    Anon- In place of cheese I would use 2 1/4 cups shredded zucchini and add 1/4 cup onion when you saute the garlic.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Instead of using breadcrumbs or flour to dredge chicken in, I have been using Garbanzo Bean flour. It has 6 G of protein for 1/4 cup. It tastes AMAZING. I actually don't miss breadcrumbs anymore. I am on a crosstraining nutrition plan though (a bit anal about my eating)

    ReplyDelete
  19. LisaLisa--

    I feel you on the anal eating comment. I'm the same way. I don't like my food to touch each other. Anyways, I'm debating between making this and your chicken francese for dinner on Saturday. They're both making my mouth water!! So far, all your recipes that I've tried, have been delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Gina, thank you so much! I made this tonight after a much-needed home cooked meal day for DBF and myself.
    It was great and used up leftovers well from our fridge. My always hungry DBF had two plus extra zuccinni and homemade garlic bread and it was the first time he didn't snack after dinner :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lisalisa- they sell that flour in my local Italian store, I love that idea! Gluten free too!

    rys- Glad hubby liked it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi Gina... this looks fabulous! Can you please specify - when do you use the 1/4 c Romano and then the 2T? I'm thinking the qtr in the skillet... but want to be sure. Thanks... love your site!

    ReplyDelete
  23. These look delicious!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Chicken, zucchini, mozz, lemon, yyuummmmm, great ingredients and ones that I always have on hand! I think I might use provolone when I try though because I sometimes feel as if mozz gets "lost" when paired with many other items. Your thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey there. I make a similar recipe with less fat but same flavors. I steam veggies and garlic using a strainer in a pan w a large lid. (cutting out the oil) and salt pepper them after steaming. Then I combine veggies and cheeses when cool. I just combine all including romano without sauteeing (less mess) i also do not put oil in the lemon juice. I do spray w pam olive oil after breading. This is such a tasty meal. I have added leftover raw spinach too

  26. If you do an Iphone app don't forget about us Android users! We'd like an app as well. Been using your website weekly. Always looking for great, healthy food with "real" ingredients. Passed it on to my friends as well. Keep making our mouths water, Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I made this for dinner last night and it was wonderful! The lemon flavor really comes through in this dish. My husband and 1 year old ate this all up :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Looks scrumptious. Will be no problem for me finishing 2!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I made this last night for my husband and some friends - everyone loved it! Super easy to make and the stuffing was so yummy. Love your site!

    ReplyDelete
  30. These look so yummy. However, my husband hates all cheese. Do you think I can still make this without the cheese or will they not stay together. If there's another substitue for the cheese I'm all ears. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Looks great! Quick question: how much of the romano/parm do you put in the zucchini mixture and how much do you save for the breadcrumb coating? Can't wait to try these!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Jamie, how strange! I would add more zucchini and maybe some onion in it's place.

    Anon- great question, I just fixed that in my directions.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Looks and sounds so good! Will be making it next week. One question though, my hubby doesn't like zucchini so I'm curious how much the flavor of it you can taste? if it isn't too strong, I may just sneak it in ;) Gina what do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lovely Gina. I really like new ideas and twists on chicken and even more I love portion sizes. - These are perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  35. these are SOOOOO delicoius! mine didn't look as pretty as yours, but they sure tasted good! I had about a dozen cherry tomatoes sitting in my fridge so I chopped them and added them to the filling, but they really didn't add much (aside from color). I served with some pasta in a very simple, organic tomato sauce and it was perfect. thank you...this one's a keeper!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Victoria, make it!! You really don't taste the zucchini much.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I found these yesterday and went straight home and made them. I didn't have zucchini so I used yellow squash instead-just as good! Though not as pretty. Also I pounded the chicken out so it would be a little thinner and each serving would be longer and cook faster. This recipe is SO DELICIOUS. I can't believe it's only 4 points! Your website is my diet's saving grace!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh I pounded the chicken too. It makes it so tender, easy to cut, and a bit longer so the rolls are bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing! The only thing I didn't have on hand was the mozzarella, so I used cheddar instead. Still yummy! I don't follow weight watchers, but I enjoy making healthy meals for my family. I use your recipes at least once or twice a week, if not more!!! Thank you for sharing :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. LY--
    This looks amazing and I can't wait to try it. One question though...I have very little experience cooking but I'm trying. How do you prepare the cutlets? Do you just use a raw chicken breast and roll the zuccini-cheese mix? I imagine that is why a few has suggested pounding it to soften it and make it easier to roll? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Anon, they sell thin cut breasts/cutlets at your grocery store, makes life very easy and you'll only need to pound if you want to.

    I plan to make this tonight but am going to use spinach and mozzarella and serve with tomato sauce and pasta and a salad.

    I'm not following WW, but am using www.myfitnesspal.com to track fat and calories and change my life. I've lost 24lbs since July 19 with that and now with Gina's help I'll keep losing.

    ReplyDelete
  42. thanks fossette, yes I used thin sliced cutlets and spreaf the zucchini over the whole cutlet and gently roll. no need to pound it unless you want to.

    Any cheese would work, feta would be nice too.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Such a beautiful chicken dish...love it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Made this tonight and it was so. dang. good! Also very filling! Hubby loved it too! Thanks, Gina!

  45. You succeed again!! I came across this one today and said to my hubs - this is a must being that I had all the ingredients in my house. It was delicious! Truly, thank you for always giving a healthy alternative and spicing up a menu? Cookbook????

    ReplyDelete
  46. So happy you all liked it! I knew this was a winner when I tasted it!

  47. Thanks for this recipe. It was fabulous and a dish my 12yo son complimented often.

  48. This looks delicious! I am going to fix it for dinner tomorrow night. I just found your web site through Pinterest and it is now on my favorites bar. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This was delicious! This will definately be made again in my house. I used the thin boneless chicken breasts and they came out so moist and flavorfull. This was the first time I've ever used the olive oil/lemon juice combo. Your website has become my go-to place for dinners now! I've been sharing your site with everyone! Thanks:)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I had an over-abundance of zucchini so i just had to try this - FABULOUS.
    I will def be stashing some in the freezer to make this later on.

    Thanks for all of the wonderful recipes...I have tried several and all have been "keepers" according to my husband.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I can't tell you how happy it makes me that you all liked them!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Made these last night they were easy and delicious!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. WOW!!!!!! I made these for dinner last night and impressed my mom, dad, & husband with the yummiest zucchini dish they ever had. I pounded the chicken thin with my new meat pounder (excellent fun!). For those who haven't tried this dish yet, WHAT are you waiting for???? Even the leftovers are awesome. I will be making these again as soon as I can get my hands on more zucchini.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have a question, not relating to this recipe - Gina have you changed anything on your website - I like to save your recipes in a special file on my computer; and have been doing so up until recently, I normally copy the recipe, open it in Word; delete the pictures etc., and save just the recipe; now when I do that I get a 'miniscule' copy of the page and that's it. Do you have any suggestions? I just love your recipes, have been using your recipes at least twice a week, Fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Gina,

    I can't wait to make these tonight! One question, they only had turkey cutlets at my grocery store. Would you cook for the same amount of time? Probably a silly question, but I'm not that handy in the kitchen! :) Thanks and love all of your stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Seriously amazing. Tastes like the most decadent dish ever, but knowing it's low carb and healthy puts such a smile on my face. THANK YOU!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Delicious! I made this tonight. I had low-fat swiss on hand, so I used that instead of the mozzarella. Everyone loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  58. AMAZING! Even my hubby loved it! His words and I quote "How'd you make the green stuff taste so good" :) Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  59. This was fantastic! Will definitely make again.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This was wonderful!!! I was sooooo mad I only made 1 cutlet for myself!!!! Definately on my 'Make Again' list.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I make this recipe last weekend. It was to die for and will definitely become a regular on my menus.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I made this tonight. They didn't look quite as pretty, BUT the taste was incredible and my husband was shocked I made something so wonderful! I made four cutlets and we finished 3. I can't wait till lunch tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  63. These were great. I pounded the cutlets first and accidentally added almost twice the cheese. Needless to say they were loved by the entire family.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I made these tonight, and they were absolutely wonderful. Thank you SO much for the recipe!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hello Gina,

    I am wondering how exactly you shred the zucchini? Cooking is pretty new to me, but so far I am loving your website. I share it with everyone I know and my whole WW group! It's wonderful! -Sarah

    ReplyDelete
  66. Greetings Gina,
    I'll be making this for tonight's dinner and I wanted to know if you peel the zucchini before shredding it?
    Your delicious recipes have been a big hit with my family, and I'm sure this will be too :o)

    Regards,
    Debbie

    ReplyDelete
  67. Gina, I am gluten free, and was curious to know what your on if it would still taste good without teh italian bread crumbs? Or maybe substitute with GF brown rice?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Made this for supper tonight and we loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm so happy you all liked it!!

    I dont peel the zucchini and to shred it you can use a cheese grater with the large holes or put it in a food processor/mini chopper.

    Gluten free- leave out the crumbs or use gf crumbs but I suggest dipping this in the lemon oil anyway... It's really good!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi Gina,
    I was the anon that asked abt the dairy substitute and u sed to use onions. It came out amazing but i kinda cheated a little and added a sprinkle of onion soup mix to the zucchini onion mix to give it the missing cheese flavor and the lemon oil is the perfect complementary flavor thank u so much!

    ReplyDelete
  71. My husband made this tonight for dinner. He used large cloves of garlic and did not peel the zucchini; we used plain breadcrumbs and added our own Italian seasonings.

    FanTAStic. The garlic and lemon pair soooo well here! Ate with a side salad.

    ReplyDelete
  72. love hearing all your modifications!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Can't wait to make this tonight!!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. This was soooo good. My picky husband and 3 children loved it! Will be making this recipe many more times!! :)

    Also, just have to say I found this website when searching for a low fat choc chip cookie (I've tried many and yours is BY FAR the best!). I enjoy baking since staying home but noticed a couple unwanted lbs take up residence on my legs. Consequently I've been on a mission to find healthy but still yummy recipes- so glad I found this site! Now I use all the recipes, not just baking ones. Every one I try is awesome, I'm never disappointed! Everyone always requests recipes (many asked the choc chip one for our next church cookbook, is that possible as long as I put the link to here on top?) so I finally put a link to here on my facebook page. Love it, please don't ever stop! :)

  75. this was amazing, i loved it!! i honestly wasnt too sure and my husband was leary to try it because he's a very picky eater.. but mr.pickey eater had a second piece!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I made this meal last night, and we all loved it! I ended adding just a few table spoons of fresh home made tomato sauce to the zucchini mixture. This is one of my favorite meals on this site now! SO SO SO GOOD!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Made ths last night and the boys loved it! Saturday night we made the Asian Turkey meatballs which we also absolutely loved, my son even asked for 2nds :) Tonight I am trying your Baked Chicken with Dijon and Lime. My pantry needs to be stocked up in more spices :) Some ingredients we can't get here in Australia, so a little experimenting will be done. Thanks for a great website, dinners just got exciting again!

  78. Made this for lunch for my husband and I today! Absolutely delicious! Your website is making my goal of feeding my family healthier meals so easy. Everything has been great so far. Thank you!!

  81. I normally don't make an 'untried' dish for company; but based on all the rave reviews, I did this one last night; all I can say is WOW. I made the filling the nite before; and had the topping all prepared, so all I had to do was roll them up, and finish them off. A real keeper. Thank you Gina

    ReplyDelete
  82. It was FAAAAAAAAAAABULOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hi Gina,
    How did you measure out the 3oz of cheese? Scale or cup?
    Thanks,

    ReplyDelete
  84. I made these tonight-substituted broccoli for the zucchini, cheddar for the mozzarella b/c it's what I had in, and threw in some small red potatoes that I had bought at the farmer's market-absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for your recipes. My goal is to make them every night!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I made these tonight. And they were hit with the whole family. I used whole chicken breasts instead of cutlets and it was absolutely amazing! I'll definitely be making these again! Thanks for the awesome recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I made these last night and they were a HUGE hit with my family, they certainly felt like I was cheating on Weight Watchers! SO YUMMY.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am making this dish right now and I am finding a few problems with the instructions. Maybe I am being to picky because it seems like everyone else just got it.

    First it says "In a large skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat." How much oil? In the ingredients you have 1 tsp and 1 tbsp listed so which do I use to coat the chicken and which do I use to cook up the garlic and zucchini?

    Then it says "Combine breadcrumbs and grated cheese in one bowl" Is this the shredded mozzarella? Am I suppose to divide it and only put part inside? Or is this the parmesan?

    I am just going to wing it but I would like to know for the future.

    ReplyDelete
  88. The ingredients are usually listed in order. So you heat 1 tsp in the pan. The grated cheese refers to parmesan cheese, sorry if I didnt explain well.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I made this last week. Everyone at the table liked it. I'm even thinking of making it again this weekend. Super easy and yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I made this last night and it was amazing. Even my picky husband enjoyed it!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Made this last night and it was AMAZING! My hubby is currently deployed and Ive been trying some new recipes for when he gets back. This one is DEFINITELY going on the list! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I've made this twice and it's been a big hit. I added a big handful of fresh spinach coarsely chopped and sauteed it along with the zucchini mixture. I also used my microplane to grate the lemon peel before juicing my lemon and added to the lemon/oil mix. Super good and so healthy. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I LOVE THIS ONE! We will definitely make this again! Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Made this over the weekend and it was fantastic! Hubby and I especially loved the touch of lemon flavor that came through from the fresh lemon juice. This is my new favorite web site.

  97. Just saw this on erecipecards.blogspot and had to pop on over. This looks so good and definitely one I'm going to try. You have a great site and I love the WW points!

    ReplyDelete
  98. This recipe is amazing! I am gluten-free and have just discovered a ton of recipes on your site that I plan to adjust.

    For this, I just used glutenfree bread crumbs, they are plain so I mixed them with Italian seasoning, garlic powder and a little bit of parsley.

    For cooking I usually use white rice flour when the purpose is thickening. When I'm baking I use Bobs Red Mill all purpose GF flour with the appropriate amount of xanthan
    gum. I am going to try the baked mac and cheese (GF) of course so I'll post a comment on that for other GF readers!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Do you cook the cutlets before this recipe? Or do you put the cheese- zuchhini mixture on the raw chicken and it cooks in the oven?

    ReplyDelete
  100. You add it to the raw chicken, then bake it all in the oven.

    ReplyDelete
  101. These are totally delicious and wonderful! Was my first recipe from your site, and I am sure I will be cooking from skinnytaste.com for the rest of my life!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Once again the ST recipe rocked! DH loved it of course - I mean come on, he got cheesy, breaded goodness - what wasn't to love?

    I followed the instructions exactly this time except, as always, I sauteed in Pam. These browned up beautifully and were cooked perfectly.

    Once again I halved the recipe and it was perfect. I have to say, your quantities and cooking temps/times are calculated so well. Recipes don't always half easily and so far every one of yours I have tried did.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Just made this and it was incredible thank you. 3-year-old and husband approved, too! Substituted finely chopped broccoli bc that's what I had. perfection!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Gina,
    I love love love this recipe and all the recipes I have tried from your site. I have made these 3x and my husband has said it is now his favorite thing I cook...surpassed his previous favorite chicken casserole which was full of unhealthy stuff (sour cream, cheese, butter!). Planning to make the lentil and chicken soup tonight. Thanks so much for all your hard work and dedication to bringing healthy recipes to the masses!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I just made this recipe last night and it was the hit of the year in my house! My kids absolutely loved it and let me tell you what, so did I! This recipe is going to become a staple in my rotation...and the possibilities are endless, you could make tons of different kinds of filling for the chicken! Thank you Gina for another hit recipe :)

    ReplyDelete
  106. Made this for dinner tonight and it was awesome. My husband can't have gluten so I made breadcrumbs for the first time from a gluten free (Udi's) hot dog bun we had on hand. Othen than that I followed the recipe as written. Turned out great and is going in the made again folder. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I made this last night....FANTASTIC! My friend and I cannot wait to make this again. She had seconds and I saved mine for dinner tonight!

  108. Do you peel the skin out of the zuccini or no? I'm trying these tonight!
    Thanks

  118. This was delicious! I did have to use toothpicks in the chicken. I actually couldn't find thin cut chicken breasts, so I had to cut them myself and use a mallet...and I think they just weren't thin enough. But it was a hit! The melty cheesy goodness was amazing! Thanks for another great recipe!

  120. Gina,

    I made this for my family this past summer when I had an abundance of zucchini and we LOVED it! I've added it to my dinner rotation and am so glad to see it on your list of favorites! Happy New Year.

  121. I made this last week with chopped broccoli, yummo! My 2 grown sons loved it also. My grand kids who are pretty picky ate it too. I love zucchini so am anxious to try it next time.

  124. Gina - I have been meaning to post a comment to this recipe for a few months now. I have made these now 3 or 4 times, and OMG...AMAZING. I am all about healthy cooking (always have been) and so me finding your website was like striking it rich in a gold mine! My family loves this dish (even my 1 1/2 year old granddaughter) and everyone I have made it for cannot BELIEVE it is cooked with weight watchers in mind. Now I just have to master the art of thinning out my chicken (cannot ever seem to find thin-sliced chicken cutlets in my grocery store!!!). Alas...some of the filling does fall out during the cooking process, but I am quick to scoop it up and add it to my plate! ha ha You are incredible. Can't wait to start a garden in the spring. Zucchini is going to be MASS PRODUCED!

  129. Made this last night and it was great!! The chicken cutlets cook so fast, though! I think next time I'll pull them out a few minutes early. Maybe it's my oven! And since I'm not WW (but always looking for healthy recipes) I'll probably increase the stuffing just a little :-p

    LOVED this recipe!! Even my boyfriend, who is not a veggie lover, devoured it. AND since the zucchini was so cleverly disguised, I got him to eat another veggie as a side dish. LOL. I will DEFINITELY make this again!

  131. Hi Gina
    I was a Skinny Taste virgin until tonight. these were just absolutely devine and I can't wait to get stuck into some of your other recipes.
    Top Tip : I rolled mine and wrapped them in silver foil before putting the breadcrumbs on as I was preparing them ahead. You get a really good firm shape by doing this so look great when they are cooked :) Good enough for a Dinner Party x

  132. Delicious! You did it again, Gina! My husband took one bite and exclaimed, "Oh wow! This one's a keeper!"

    ReplyDelete
  133. I love all of your recipes! Thank you for including WW points! So helpful! I just have a question for this recipe- how are the points+ for this 4/serving if a 3oz piece of chicken alone is 3?
    Thanks again, so much. Absolutely delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  134. This recipe is excellent! We just finished it for dinner tonight and my husband, boys, and I agree that it's a keeper. Thanks for a great recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I loved this recipe, just made it last night. I found a recipe for artisan bread and baked my own bread too. Plus I pinned this onto my pinterest board. I have to say your blog has inspired me to cook. I love the nutrition facts you provide, and I have prepared 5 meals from this blog since I started my cooking kick, oh about 5 days ago, lol! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I made the the other night, it was wonderful! The stuffing had such a great flavor, and the chicken was nice and tender. Will make this again for sure!

  137. I made this recipe for my boyfriend and we both loved it! I added sautéed onion into the zucchini/cheese mixture and it was amazing!

    Made this tonight, and it was INCREDIBLE! I added some onion as well, and it was just delicious! Gobbled up by my 3 girls, too, ages 7, 3 and 2! Putting this in my favorites!!

  139. Made it tonight for dinner...it was easy and delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I made this last night for dinner because we happened to have everything needed already. It was so easy and absolutely delicious!! Thanks so much for posting this recipe

    ReplyDelete
  141. please explain the ww points...i thought that a 3oz cooked breast without skin and bone was 3pts. how do all of the rest of the ingredients only add up to a point?

    ReplyDelete
  142. Made these tonight and they turned out great. I did increase the portion size of the chicken to 4 oz which increased the points to 6 per piece of chicken in the recipe builder. Served it with a salad and a roll and it was plenty of food. I did add some already sautéed mushrooms to the zucchini mixture, that was a hit. Thinking of adding some diced sun-dried tomatoes next time. My three year old ate it up!

    ReplyDelete
  143. These were absolutely delish and I regularly have all of these ingredients on hand! They were super easy to make, and didn't take too long. Thanks for sharing :)

    ReplyDelete
  144. Tried this today and it was delicious. I have a quick question - my rolls kept coming apart during the dipping/breading process. Do you have any tips to keep them together?

    ReplyDelete
  145. Made these last night. Very tasty & easy. I did add some onion, mushrooms & yellow squash to the garlic, cheese, zucchini mixture...very flavorful. And really enjoyed the olive oil/lemon wash. Thanks for all the great recipes, I look forward to your daily mail!

    ReplyDelete
  146. made this with chopped up broccoli instead of zucchini and it was really good. very messy to make but in the end it was worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  147. These were SO amazing. I honestly have never cooked with zucchini before because I had no idea how (Im only a couple years into the married and cooking game lol) and WOW I almost ate all the zucchini before I could roll it up in the chicken, it was SOO good. I got a bunch of zucchini yesterday so I could use it prepared to eat as a veggie side without even rolling it up in the chicken. SOOO good

    ReplyDelete
  148. I made this last night. My husband said this is the best chicken dish I have ever made. It sure was delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  149. My friend made this and it was amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  150. We just finished eating these for dinner. They are amazing! Thanks for the healthy idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  151. I made this about 2 weeks ago and I was just amazed how good they were and the chicken was so moist. Thanks so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  152. We've made these a couple of times now, and they're our favorite of the Skinnytaste rollatinis. With only two of us, though, we wind up with lots of leftovers!

    Tonight, we reheated one in the microwave on 1/2 power, then sliced it thin and put it on a simple salad of artisan lettuce, scallions, cucumbers, and black sesame seeds. I topped mine with a 50/50 mix of Vidalia onion dressing with dijon mustard; it was delightful, and a perfect "summer" supper on an 83 degree day!

    ReplyDelete
  153. I just made this for the first time and it is an amazing dish!! My family loved it. I had a hard time keeping them rolled and the zucchini mixture inside while I was dipping it in the oil/lemon, so I did that as a first step; dipped the chicken in the lemon/oil, added the zucchini mixture, rolled and then put in the breadcrumbs. Other than that, I followed to a tee and it was great. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. It is the first one I tried and I can't wait to try more.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Wow! just had these for dinner and they were super delish! I will def make these at least once a week!

    ReplyDelete
  155. Made these Sunday!!! so YUM

    ReplyDelete
  156. so I forgot the grated cheese and instead used breadcrumbs...also hubby hates zucchini so I used spinach and threw in some chic peas...cannot wait to try it! Also had breasts and sliced them next time I will get the thin sliced ones...

    ReplyDelete
  157. These were amazing. We were out of parm and Romano so I mixed in a bit of cream cheese with the mozzarella. And we topped with panko because that's what we had on hand. Can't wait to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Made this tonight, and asked my pickiest eater (12 yr old son) what he thought...his reply was 'It was very good!'. I have yet to try a skinnytaste.com recipe that we didn't love! :)

    ReplyDelete
  159. I made this last night and it was amazing! I only had chicken breasts so I used two large breast and I cut them in half width wise and then in half again to make 8 smaller sections.
    :)

  160. Gina, seriously. These are to die for. The lemon juice is PERFECTION. New family favorite. I keep the ingredients on hand at all times. I love that your recipes are healthy but they never taste like it. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  161. I do not like lemon flavor at all. How much can you taste it? I was thinking of using fresh lime instead. What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  162. I made this last night for my daughter's birthday dinner. It was delicious and everybody loved it. Sides were brown rice, mashed potatoes, steamed veggies and a salad. I made it buffet style.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  163. We made this last night for dinner. The chicken was so moist and the filling was delicious. I will definitely be making these again!

    ReplyDelete
  164. I just made this for dinner and can't get over how delicious it is! It's simply amazing. The filling is so tasty and keeps the chicken moist. It's not heavily breaded and you don't waste points using egg and a binder or coating.

    Thank you so much once again for an incredible dinner!

    ReplyDelete
  165. made this for dinner last week and my family went crazy for it. I'm already being asked to make it again. simply amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  166. officially one of my fav. ST recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  167. Made this for my boyfriend last week and making it for my mother on her day on Sunday! Thanks for a great, delicious recipe that looks much more complicated than it really is: I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  168. In the oven right now! OMG smells so good. I forgot to add the cheese in the mixture before stuffing them, which is OK because mine are a little overstuffed I think, anyway, I figure I will add the cheese to the top in the last 5 minutes. Also, I added about 2 tbsp of French Fried Onions to the breadcrumbs. I'm guessing that it will only add a point at most to these and hoping the flavor comes through.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Tried this dish tonight and it was awesome!!! My husband kept asking what smelled so delicious. Thanks for all the great recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  170. I made this for dinner last night, it was amazing! Can't wait to try some more of your recipes!

  171. I made this last night...it was so good I brought it to work for lunch :)

    ReplyDelete
  172. My husband and I have made these twice and must say its one of our favorite recipes and we are not fans of zucchini but this recipe cant get enough of them.

    ReplyDelete
  173. I stopped at a local farmer's market today and bought a bunch of zucchini. I was thrilled to find this recipe on your site. It was fantastic. The lemon and olive oil mixture was such a nice change and added so much flavor. My husband isn't a huge fan of zucchini but he said he wanted me to add this to the rotation! Thank you for another amazing recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  174. I made these for my boyfriend last night and he literally picked the cooking pan clean of cheese and zucchini afterwards. It was one of the best dishes I have ever had (and cooked!). Thank you for the wonderful recipe - it was delicious! :)

    ReplyDelete
  175. Another great recipe! Didn't change a single thing and they came out perfect. My boyfriend licked his plate clean. Next time I will try to fit in a little more stuffing to each chicken. It was amazingly delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  176. This dish was so amazing! I followed the recipe exactly, and they were perfection! Mom and I just REjoined WW and your site is especially helpful. I tell everyone about your site!! I had leftovers during the week, and each day...it seemed to get EVEN tastier!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  177. These are really Yummy made them last night and was a hit with myself and my partner. Thank-you heaps thinking I might take this one and share with WW meeting.

    ReplyDelete
  178. I made this tonight! It was delicious! I did add chopped white mushrooms, spinach leaves, and green onions to the mixture as well! Deeeellliiiccciiiooouuusss:)

    ReplyDelete
  179. These look SO amazing! I love the fact that they have the "unhealthy" appearance while still being low carb and low fat. I'll probably be making these this weekend. Thanks for the great recipe, Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Okay stupid question...do u peel the zucchini before u shred it?

    ReplyDelete
  181. My husband and I came across this recipe on Pinterest and OMG!! We use pepperjack cheese instead for a lil kick and its heaven! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  182. I made these last night and they were so good and filling, I had 2 with rice and definetaly hit the spot. My husband and kids loved them and asked for more.

    ReplyDelete
  183. This was awesome. Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  184. I made this for dinner last night and it was so good! I omitted the Romano/Parmesan because I am following the blood type diet (I'm an A+) and can only have mozzarella. My husband loved this, too! I really love your blog and plan to try lots of your recipes ;)

    ReplyDelete
  185. I made this for dinner tonight for my family of four and it was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and although I wasn't sure how the zucchini would taste, it gave it a really nice texture. I was pleasantly surprised and my husband and daughters ate every morsel. I paired it with linguini tossed with olive, garlic and parmesean cheese. Very good. Thank you so much for this website and recipes. It's a great way to have healthier meals that actually taste great.

    Signed,

    A happy wife and mother!

  186. I made this for my husband for dinner last night & got the best response - there was no talking at the dinner table. Just eating this delicious recipe. Will definitely make again!! Thanks for a great way to use zucchini.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Two things:
    1. I've never written back about a recipe so this is my first
    2. This was soooo delicious! I'm tempted to eat the leftovers right now...even though I'm stuffed

    Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  188. Absolutely incredible! Great with Italian shredded cheese instead of just mozzarella. The family loved it and it was easy to make.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Made this tonight and husband loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  190. I followed the directions correctly.... I think. The taste was good but it didn't turn out the way I had hoped. Probably user error. The filling is so delicious but I only had enough for one tbs per cutlet instead of three.. As for the cutlets, I had two chicken breasts that I butterflied then cut in half leaving me with eight pieces. I pounded them flat too. Sadly, my breadcrumbs never got crispy. They were sad and soggy unlike the beautiful, golden look of Gina's. No hum.

    ReplyDelete
  191. This recipe is DELICIOUS!! I had a really hard time rolling them..so I layered like a casserole, turned out amazing! Dinner and a couple days worth of lunches! :) Your site is GREAT! Everything I have made (about 6 things so far) is really good! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  192. I made this for dinner last night and it was AMAZING! But since I had such a huge zucchini, I also made the zucchini tots (and forgot to wring out the zucchini - D'OH!). I'll definately be making this again.

    ReplyDelete
  193. I'm a little confused about what shredded cheese to add to the breadcrumbs... do you use Romano or Mozzarella? Also, how much do you combine to the breadcrumbs in comparison to the Zucchini/Romano mix?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You use Romano OR Parmesan 1/4 cup (I used parm because it's what I had on hand) AND mozzarella to mix into the zucchini/garlic saute, then you add the Romano OR Parmesan (whichever you chose) to the bread crumb mix. The way the recipe is written I believe it calls for 2Tbsp in the bread crumb mix, but I just sprinkled some in without measuring.

  194. Absolutely amazing!! The whole family loved it, even my very picky 17 month old and 7 year old!! Delicious!!!
