These stuffed chicken roll ups are definitely one to save for days when you need something special.

Seriously, this recipe is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The combination of a deliciously crispy coating, succulent chicken, and a melty cheese centre is just unbeatable. Hammering out those chicken breasts is pretty therapeutic too.  

It might look fancier than your average chicken meal prep, but trust us, even a rookie cook can nail this one. Serve up with a crisp, fresh salad for a lighter option, or pair with sweet potato wedges for the perfect Friday night treat. 

Makes 2


  • 2 large chicken breasts  
  • 1 tsp. onion powder 
  • 2 tsp. mixed herbs 
  • Salt & pepper to taste  
  • 6-8 sundried tomatoes  
  • 60g low-fat cheddar (grated) 
  • 200g baby spinach  
  • 100g golden breadcrumbs  
  • Low-calorie cooking spray  
Serving suggestions:
  • Fresh salad or your favorite veggies


  1. First preheat your oven to 400°F. 
  2. Butterfly each chicken breast so that you can open it out into two connected halves. Place on a chopping board and cover with clingfilm, then flatten out the meat using a rolling pin.  
  3. Season with onion powder, mixed herbs, salt, and pepper, then add the toppings like you would a pizza — sundried tomatoes, baby spinach and a generous sprinkling of cheddar.
  4. Carefully roll up the chicken breast from one side to the other so you have a tight roll with all the fillings on the inside. Use toothpicks at either end to hold in place.  
  5. Roll the chicken rolls in the golden breadcrumbs, spray with a little low-calorie cooking spray, and then place on a lined baking tray. Bake for 35 minutes until completely cooked through.  
  6. Once cool enough to touch, remove the toothpicks and slice up into even pieces. Serve with a salad or your favorite veggies, or sweet potato wedges if you’re after a more filling meal.
