Creamy savory flavor bomb chicken roll-ups are legit a meal that EVERYONE in your family will love. They’re full of veggies (totally hidden) chicken and creamy cheese. The best part is the sauce!
To make this delicious chicken roll-ups I like to start by boiling my noodles, cooking my chicken in an instant pot & shredding it. Once those are prepped I start on my sauce. Although this dinner takes a few steps it is all very easy to make. These chicken roll-ups can be made ahead of time too. Perfect for those busy nights when you need to eat fast and don’t have time to slave over the stove.
4 chicken breasts cooked and shredded or 1 rotisserie chicken I prefer rotisserie chicken because of its flavor.
1 tsp salt*
4 TBS butter
1/4 cup onion minced
1/4 cup bell pepper minced red, yellow or orange. the sweeter variety
1 garlic clove, minced
1 roma tomato died small
5 TBS flour
4 cups broth*
1/4-1/2 cup heavy cream
3 cups mozzarella cheese
12 cooked lasagna noodles
In skillet add butter, onion, bell pepper, garlic, tomato. Sauté over med-low heat until very softened. Turn up heat to med-high. Add flour and cook for a few more minutes. Slowly whisk in 4 cups of broth*.
Bring to a simmer. When sauce is thickened to desire consistency turn off heat and add 1/4 cup of cream. You can add up to 1/2 cup if you prefer it more creamy.
Spread about 1/2 cup sauce in bottom of 9x13 pan. Mix shredded chicken and about 2 cups mozz cheese (you can use more or less cheese as desired)
Lay out lasagna noodles and spread cheese and shredded chicken over. Roll up. and place in 9x13 pan. Pour sauce over. Add more cheese if desired. Bake 350 for about 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
*different brands of broth have more seasonings and salt. For this recipe taste test the sauce for saltiness. IF you are using bullion and rotisserie chicken there will be plenty of salt. If using plain boiled chicken and a low-sodium broth you will need to add salt and/or seasoning salts for flavor.
