How to Cook Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Roll

  1. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.
  2. Butterfly the chicken breast – slice the chicken horizontally, but don’t slice it all the way through to the other side; the idea is to open it like a book.
  3. Cover it with plastic wrap and tenderize the meat using a meat hammer. Remove the plastic wrap.
  4. Season the chicken breast with salt, pepper, and dried basil.
  5. Add half of the shredded mozzarella quantity, pickled red pepper and the remaining mozzarella.
  6. Roll up the chicken breast.
  7. Make egg wash whisking the egg with milk.
  8. Coat the chicken roll with flour, then with egg wash, then with breadcrumbs.
  9. Put the roll in a ceramic baking dish and drizzle some olive oil on it.
  10. Roast for 35 minutes.
  11. Serve warm, with mashed potatoes.
