Chicken breasts stuffed and rolled with salami and mozzarella then baked in tomato sauce until hot and bubbly. An easy way to spice up chicken night!

If you’re anything like me then you eat a ton of chicken and that can get pretty boring. . . trust me when I say this is super easy and doesn’t take long to prep at all despite what it looks like.

In just a few minutes you can throw together a high quality meal packed with flavor that everyone will love. Even guests.

Salami & Mozzarella Chicken Roll-Ups

Chicken breasts pounded thin and rolled up with thinly sliced salami and shredded mozzarella cheese tucked inside. They slowly bake in a tomato sauce bath covered in more cheese until the centers get melted and gooey making them delicious both inside and out.

You can substitute pepperoni for the salami and a different type of cheese (one that melts well) if you like. Serve with pasta, couscous, rice, polenta or a grain.

    I just made this for dinner tonight when I was in a pinch in regards to both time and supplies. I Googled something to the effect of “chicken and salami in tomato sauce” because I had those things on hand and knew they’d go good together somehow, some way. Sure enough! This recipe was SOOO good! Even my boyfriend loved it, and he is generally a picky eater. The tomato sauce is definitely an important star in this dish, so be sure to use a tomato sauce you love. I used two cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes, one can of tomato paste, a little pit of onion powder, oregano, garlic salt, and pepper… threw it all in the food processor. Sooo yummy! Thanks, Reeni!

    We eat tons of chicken at our house too, Reeni. I agree, it can get monotonous if you don’t find a whole bunch of different ways to prepare it. This is a great company dish! Impressive when served but easy to throw together before company arrives. No standing over the stove. Thanks!
