How to Cook Bacon Chicken Roll Ups With Cheese Sauce
- 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.
- 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.
- Transfer the two rolls into a baking dish, pour the olive oil on them, then bake for 30 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
- 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.
- Add the thyme, season with pepper, and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Serve the rolls thickly slices, on a bed of milk and cheese sauce. Optionally, drizzle with crumbled pistachio.
