    7 ounces of bacon (10-12 strips)
    2 ounces of pistachio
    1 tablespoon olive oil

How to Make Bacon Chicken Roll Ups With Cheese Sauce

  1. For the rolls:

    Wrap a chicken thigh with plastic wrap and tenderize it with the mallet. Lay 5-6 strips of bacon on your work surface so that they partially overlap themselves.

  2. Add the tenderized chicken thigh on top of them. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with 1-ounce pistachio, and roll. Follow the same steps for the other chicken thigh.
  3. Transfer the two rolls into a baking dish, pour the olive oil on them, then bake for 30 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  4. For the sauce:

    Add the milk to a cooking pot over low heat. Add the Brie, Emmental, and blue cheese. Cook and stir until the milk starts bubbling.

  5. Add the thyme, season with pepper, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Serve the rolls thickly slices, on a bed of milk and cheese sauce. Optionally, drizzle with crumbled pistachio.
