These protein packed Chicken Parmesan Rolls (also know as chicken rolls) are wrapped in my easy pizza dough with marinara and mozzarella cheese, so good!
Chicken Parmesan Rolls
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 organic grilled 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.
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.
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.
