Chicken Parmesan Roll Ups is a twist on the classic dish, chicken parmesan. Complete with bread crumbs and pasta sauce, this dish has all the parmesan favorites.
I enjoy taking same old favorites and turning them into something new. Like what I did with the Pizza Meatloaf. Sometimes old recipes need a new twist to keep the family happy. As meat prices are rising, I need different ways to keep the family well fed, and inexpensively! With chicken breasts only $1.99 a pound, I thought I would try something new and this Chicken Parmesan Roll Ups came to mind.
It is really very simple and only took a few minutes to assemble. The best part was the already cooked chicken breasts. I had put the chicken in the crock pot ahead of time so when it was time to make the chicken parmesan roll ups the chicken was already cooked. I usually have cooked shredded chicken in the freezer for quick meals like this. Handy to have, ready to pull out.
The ingredients are simple with the chicken parmesan roll ups. Egg, ricotta cheese, Italian bread crumbs and chicken make up the filling for the rolls ups. Boiled lasagna noodles, spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese finish the ingredients. Simple ingredients, tasty casserole. A great way to “Feed The Fam”.
