Pretty good but very very greasy. I pounded the chicken breasts as thinly as I could added the stuffing folded and secured with toothpicks; the stuffing would have fallen out had I tried to slice it and pan fry. I ended up baking for about 40 minutes. Good but not great. Thanks! Read More

I made this and really liked it. I added some cheese and COOKED the chorizo before using it. Cheap Chorizo has a lot of fat that needs to be cooked out before eating. Also I don't it's real safe to put pork sausage in the middle of a roll up without precooking it. Read More

I altered the recipe slightly. I used Andouille sausage instead of Chorizo and also added some sliced swiss cheese before rolling the chicken. I added a drizzle of brown gravy at the end which made the dish more moist. It was delicious! Read More

I was looking for something different tonight that used minimal ingredients as we just returned from vacation and I had very little to choose from. This fit the bill perfectly! It was quite easy to make and very tasty. I followed recipe exactly except I did sprinkle some garlic powder on the slices and then some very finely grated swiss cheese. This made a pretty presentation and hubby said we could have these again anytime! Read More

Very easy to do. My husband enjoyed. We eat a lot of chicken so any new way to prepare it is a good thing. Since then I've also used hot Italian sausage and works out well. Have made several times! Read More

Loved this recipe!!! I made it for my hubby and it's been a weekly favorite since! I used turkey sausage instead since I don't eat chorizo but the dish had such a nice flavor. Yum! Sever it with plain rice and a veggie and your beau will be begging for thirds! Read More

I made this yesterday and it was yummy. I cut back on the fat I used soyrizo which is a soy based chorizo. I couldn't really taste the dill or the pinenuts so next time I'll leave them out and add some cheese. Since I cooked mine a little too long they were a bit dry so I drizzled it with a little salsa verde to moisten it up Read More
