Personal Review: Right before the arctic weather hit our little neck of the woods, I went onto Taste of Home’s website and printed out 4 new recipes to try (nothing like a little homemade food on cold wintry nights!) The first recipe I tried was a total bust and won’t be featured here. The second one was this one.
It gave me the opportunity to put my handy dandy new meat tenderizer as well! I’ve made other roll-up recipes before and never had a tenderizer. So I was excited that I would be able to flatten the chicken breasts correctly! That said, I will admit that I failed to make them thin enough to roll them very easily. But you live and learn and now I know how to flatten those suckers properly, ha!
Anyway, this recipe is incredibly easy (read: idiot-proof). It’s fast and simple. It tastes great. I will say that I used more than 3 pepperoni slices, opting to put 5 on each roll-up. I think in the future I will add even more pepperoni because I just love pepperoni. I also didn’t plan very well in advance and had absolutely nothing to serve with it. Next time I will try to have some garlic bread, noodles of some sort and a salad.
Not much else to say about this recipe. It’s good and I highly recommend it.
