Here on Long Island, you can find Chicken Rolls or Chicken Parm Rolls in just about any pizzeria. It’s basically chicken Parmesan wrapped in pizza dough. They’re usually made with breaded fried chicken cutlets, which makes them anything but light. To make it healthier I used grilled organic chicken breast and my homemade yogurt pizza dough instead. These rolls turned out amazing – even my husband, who orders these all the time, agreed. If you like this you may want to try my Pizza Sausage Rolls.

Chicken Parm Rolls

I teamed up with Stonyfield Organic to create this recipe. I always keep a few containers of Stonyfield Organic Plain Greek Yogurt to make bagels, pizza dough, etc. Their yogurt is super thick which works perfect in my pizza dough and I love adding the extra protein. I’ve been dying to test out these chicken rolls, a childhood favorite of mine and they exceeded my expectations.

These tasty, chicken roll-ups are so easy to make, a hit with the kids or adults. Serve them for lunch or dinner with marinara sauce on the side for dipping. They are loaded with protein which keeps you full longer, just pair them with a mixed green salad to complete the meal.

I recently participated in Stonyfield’s Virtual Farm Tour event where I demoed my bagel ball recipe. What I love about working with Stonyfield is the importance they put on supporting small family farms. I personally got to experience a real farm tour with them in Vermont visiting several organic dairy farms which was such a great experience.

Note: I have not tested these with gluten-free flour, but I have successfully made the bagels with cup4cup, so I am sure it will work. You may have to add five more minutes to the baking time.

How To Store

Leftovers will hold in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. These rolls would also be excellent to freeze after baking and pull out later for a quick meal. To bake, thaw the night before and reheat in the oven for about five minutes until warm. You can also bake them from frozen and just cook them longer.

For the dough:

  • 1 cup all purpose or white whole wheat flour, plus more for dusting (5 oz)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup Stonyfield non-fat Greek yogurt, not regular, drained if there’s any liquid

For the egg wash:

  • Add the yogurt and mix with a fork or spatula until well combined, it will look like small crumbles.
  • Lightly dust flour on a work surface and remove dough from the bowl, knead the dough a few times until smooth, not lumps. The dough will be tacky, but not sticky, about 20 turns (it should not leave dough on your hand when you pull away).

Assemble the rolls:

  • Divide into 4 equal balls, about 3-3/8 ounces each.
  • Lightly sprinkle a work surface and rolling pin with flour and roll the dough out into thin rounds, 7 inches in diameter.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of marinara down the center of the circle in a strip, top with 1/2 cup of the chicken (2 oz) 1 tablespoon more marinara sauce and 3 tablespoons of cheese.
  • Fold the right side of the dough over the top of the chicken then repeat with the left side.

  1. I did the chicken in my Foodi Pressure cooker and then put these in the air fryer and they were fantastic!

  2. I made these rolls and they were fantastic. The second time I decided to add quick yeast to the dough and ensured the “liquid” or yoghurt was warmed to help activate the yeast. I followed the directions I made the rolls then let them “proof” covered for approx 40 mins then baked as directed. 
    They were beyond wonderful. The yeast add a light fluffiness to the inside of the dough while the exterior still has the slight crustiness of a pizza dough. 

    Wonderful!! Thank you!!

  3. We love this recipe! It is always nice when all the adults and the children love the same meal. We serve it with a simple side salad.

    Have you tried it in the air fryer? I would love to know if it works in the air fryer!

  4. I would double the flower part of the recipe ( yogurt etc) definitely not enough dough to make four round balls.

    The recipe calls for using a silicone mat. I do not have a silicone mat. Can I use parchment paper? Or, spray the sheet pan?

  6. I made them on a Sunday to warm up for a quick and easy meal during the week. The four chicken parm rolls I made looked and smelled delicious! Although the recipe said they were easy to reheat from fridge or freezer, I couldn’t find directions to do it. Can someone give me specific directions for reheating?

    Yummmmm.  So easy to make.  I’ll admit I bought precooked grilled chicken.   Added a bit of sour cream as I needed 1/4 cup more yogurt which I did not have.  Everyone loved it!

    1. Cooked. I believe it is shown in the video. It also doesn’t say anything in the recipe about cooking the chicken. It is sma short bake time, so it wouldn’t be long enough for the chicken to be done. I am trying it this week!
