Super Simple Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Cutlets
Tonight, youngest son came to have dinner with us...and he really loves both chicken and mushrooms...so I made a quick and simple dinner using chicken breast cutlets, sauce and cheese. Using a meat mallet, I pounded chicken breast cutlets until they were about 1/8" thick. I cut fresh mozzarella cheese into rectangular pieces and placed it in the center of each cutlet, then sprinkled lightly with a little Italian seasoning and rolled them up tightly and placed seam side down in a casserole dish coated with a thin layer of spicy Rao's Arrabbiata sauce. Once they were all rolled and placed, I topped them with a couple cups of cooked sliced fresh mushrooms that I sauteed in a little olive oil with sea salt and black pepper. I poured the rest of the sauce over the top of the chicken bundles and mushrooms, layered it with the rest of the fresh mozzarella and some Italian 6-cheese blend and baked it covered at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes, then uncovered it and baked it an additional 10 minutes and ran it under the broiler for a couple of minutes more until the cheese was lightly browned and bubbly. I served it alongside some zucchini pasta (made with my Spirelli). It was quick, simple and delicious! I snapped a quick picture for you to see below. Enjoy!

that looks and sounds delicious! I will definitely try this one. Thank you for all of your delicious recipes. I've made so many of them, I've lost count!
Thanks, SLB! So happy you've found some recipes you like! It was just a simple and easy recipe to put together. The hands on time was minimal with most of the time involved waiting for it to bake! :-) Hope you enjoy it!
Wow ... this one is going to the head of my "queue"! :-)
This one sounds mouthwatering!And it will give me a chance to try and make the Arrabiata sauce too, which sounds delicious. You are such in inspiration to so many people, thanks so much!!
Best wishes, Maria (The Netherlands-Europe)
Hi Cybersis! Hope you enjoy it! :-)
Thanks so much Maria! I hope you enjoy it. If you have fresh basil leaves available -- I would put one of those in along with the cheese when you roll them up (instead of dried Italian seasoning) -- I just didn't have any fresh available. I hope you enjoy it and thanks for your kind comments! :-)
You wrote about using a *spirelli* gadget. I am wondering if a person(moi) with very bad hands and wrists(RA) would be able to handle this tool? My right hand is almost useless now. Just thought I asked you before I purchase one.
Thank you GG, I am just dying to prepare the zucchini noodles!
Hi Barbara -- if you have trouble with your wrists/hands -- particularly the right hand, it might be difficult to use. You have to grasp the zucchini (which can be a bit slippery) and keep twisting it around to make the noodles. There is another kind of cutter that other people use -- a spiral cutter that might work better for you. Here is one I've seen people talk about (from Amazon). It isn't too expensive either -- about $26.00 or so at Amazon. I also have one that is a julienne vegetable peeler...but again might be difficult if you have any hand/wrist problems. Check out this one and see what you think -- there are 779 reviews of it, mostly positive. Hope that helps! :-) http://www.amazon.com/World-Cuisine-A4982799-Tri-Blade-Vegetable/dp/B0007Y9WHQ
Hi GG, as usual you came through for me! I am ordering the new spiral cutter and am looking forward to using it! The reviews are excellent and I spent way too much time reading them!
thank you so much for helping again. I feel guilty taking so much of your valuable time .
I must say that your website is by far the best, I did a lot of browsing, there are so many grain free sites now, but I find yours " un cluttered and easy to use!
I still do not know How you manage it all!
TANK YOU GG!

Hi Barbara! Thanks so much! Glad I could help out. You will have to let me know if you like it once you get it. I've thought about ordering one too...but I have so many gadgets and only so much room to store them! I still may get it some day -- after I make room for it! Hope you enjoy it! :-)
Had this a couple days ago and we both thought it was delicious! I used my trusty Mouli for the "pasta." Perfecto!
Hi CyberSis! So glad you enjoyed it! I need to make it again soon, too! :-)
