Baked Chicken Roll Ups with feta and dill, easy to roll, no toothpicks juicy and tender stuffed chicken rolls with crunchy outside. | ifoodreal.com

Happy Monday! If Monday can ever be happy?! I think Sunday night is worse.:)

2 weeks ago Canada celebrated Thanksgiving. Meet our dinner – healthy chicken thighs stuffed with feta and dill, rolled in Panko breadcrumbs and baked for only 25 minutes. Super easy baked chicken roll ups. I haven’t done roll ups in years and was intimidated at first, for no reason. You don’t even need to use toothpicks – stuffed chicken roll ups won’t unroll.

If you are like me and can’t handle eating huge turkey 2 months in a row or just don’t have a big crowd to serve, then these baked chicken roll ups would be perfect for your Thanksgiving table paired with root vegetable mash or bacon mashed potatoes as a side.

I love feta with dill, and I love Spanakopita. Hey, I’m Ukrainian and we add dill to almost anything, just like garlic. Dill with feta and garlic is a killer combination. Stuffed inside sweet and soft chicken = double awesomeness.

Melted cheese with garlic herbs inside, juicy and tender meat with crunchy outside. You like my description?! Perfect fancy and quick main dish. And it’s 100% clean. Alex loved it. What Alex doesn’t like though?! But seriously, butter & heavy cream lovers guests approved too. I could tell they meant it! You know what I mean. Serving clean meals to some people is intimidating…for me.

Feel free to use chicken breasts, just slice them lengthwise in 2 or 3 slices, depending on the breast size. Use fat free feta if you wish. I don’t count calories anymore, I just eat clean and whole. Whole wheat breadcrumbs are great too. When rolling, just make sure all sides are tucked in and meat is holding the stuffing inside. It’s OK if some leaks out while baking. Your chicken will be fine.:)

Also, if you like Spanakopita, you might like this crustless spinach feta quiche. Crazy Ukrainian Greek recipe.:) Also give chicken lasagna roll ups with artichoke a try.

    My husband and I loved this!! Every night we say this the best recipe yet. Ha! Any ideas on a good complimentary side? I did sautéed green beans but didn’t quite hit the spot. Oh we have been fighting over leftovers! I have never found a blog that each recipe was consistently a win! Thank you for that! You are awesome and I’ve been sharing with all my peeps. 😉

      Ha! Thank you Bridgette for being an awesome fan!!! Made my day! We happen to have very similar taste I guess.:) Enjoy!
      As for the side, my personal preference is salad, quinoa or mashed root vegetables instead of mashed potatoes. I have recipe here. Just look under Sides. That’s how we had it for Txgiving.
