I, like many people have certain recipes that have been past down through the generations and this chicken roll-up recipe is one of my families favorites that came from my Great-Grandmother. It isn't made very often anymore but it's ALWAYS a winner with us!
Since we were spending the evening with my Grandmother yesterday, I felt like we should have something yummy that would bring us good memories and full bellies. This is one of those recipes.
- 1 lb chicken tenders or breasts
- 1 can french style green beans
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 4-5 pieces of sliced cheese (any other type of cheese will work fine too)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Using a zip lock storage bag or two pieces of plastic wrap and a mallet, pound out your chicken into flat cutlets. Don't worry if this isn't the easiest thing you've ever done. Even if the chicken rips a little it's not a big deal.
Next, add a half slice of cheese on top of the pounded out chicken, then add about 2 tablespoons of the green beans. Roll the chicken up making sure to keep the cheese and green beans in the center, and secure it with a toothpick.
Place chicken bundles in a glass baking dish. A 9 X 13 or an 8 X 8 work fine depending on how much chicken you're cooking but I've found that it cooks best in a glass pan.
Next, evenly distribute the cream of chicken soup over the chicken bundles, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 30 minutes if using tenders, and 40 - 45 minutes if using breasts.
There's just something about the combination of flavors in this dish that is so delicious! The cheese and the juice from the chicken help to make a creamy cheesy gravy that is perfect over mashed potatoes or rice.
Do you have any special recipes that have been passed down to you? I'd love to hear about them.
Thanks for dropping by and reading! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
