Mozzarella Chicken Roll-Ups

IMG_1038

Chicken breast recipes are probably the most popular searched recipes.  There are so, so many of them out there.  Let me tell you, if you try this, I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes one of your favorites.  This recipe comes from my mom (as most of my recipes do) and my husband absolutely loves these delicious roll ups, he said it is definitely his favorite chicken dish!  These chicken breasts are pounded out, dredged in bread crumbs, rolled up, browned, topped with mozzarella and mushrooms, and baked to ooey, gooey perfection.  They are easily doubled, tripled, or quadrupled for a crowd, and look impressive, and taste even better!

1-1/2 to 2 cups of bread crumbs

3 cups of vegetable oil

12oz canned mushrooms

2 cups mozzarella cheese

14.5oz can chicken broth

Roll each chicken breast up, securing them with tooth piks (I used 3, make sure you use the same amount for each breast so you can tell your dinner guests how many to look out for).

Remove from oil and lay chicken roll ups on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
