During the week, we’re all in a hurry, at home we prefer to eat healthier no fuss meals like a chicken salad. But sometimes, you just need a little comfort, which usually means you want to eat something filling, cheesy and delicious. This recipe for chicken mozzarella rolls is great tasting, easy to do, and you don’t sacrifice the healthy aspect all that much. It’s all baked, no fried stuff.
The combination of bread crumbs, cheese, and tomato sauce will surely satisfy your taste buds! I recommend you pair this with mashed potatoes and a side of green vegetables. You can use Italian style tomato sauce, or whip up your own chunky tomato sauce by simply dicing and sauteing tomatoes, garlic, onions, and basil (seasoned with salt and pepper).
