In this video I am going to share with you a Spinach & Chicken Roulade with Creamy Whole Grain Mustard & Thyme Sauce recipe. Chorizo is a dry-cured pork sausage with a salty, smoky and slightly sweet flavor. It is delicious with pastas, pizzas, salads and at the brekkie table or added as an ingredient to add flavors to other dishes. Dominant mustard flavor was a strong complement to a chicken dish, but not so overpowering that it hid the flavor of the chicken stuffed with a bold chorizo.

Spinach, chorizo and lemon zest inside tender chicken breast with a parmesan crust makes this dish a sensational and simple weeknight meal that everyone will enjoy. The spinach and chicken roulade are tasty on its own but coated with creamy whole mustard and thyme sauce makes every bite an unforgettable meal.

Several notes here to share with you:

  • I used spinach and chopped chorizo sausage for the chicken roulade recipe. You could use any other types of stuffing that you prefer. For example, prawn meat, mushroom, bacon, salami, nuts, etc. The choice is endless.
  • I used rolling pin to flatten the chicken breasts. You could use mallet or the back of pot, whichever is available to you.
  • I used zip lock bag to flatten the chicken breasts. You could also use plastic wrap, whichever is available to you.
  • I used thick cream in the sauce recipe. You could use double cream or heavy cream, whichever is available.
  • I used a hand blender to puree the onions. You could use other types of food processor that is available to you.
  • I used Himalayan Pink Salt. You could use other types of salt that is available to you.
  • Bake chicken rolls for 25 to 30 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending on the quantity of rolls cooking in the oven.
  • I used a fan-forced oven set to 180 degree Celsius to bake the chicken rolls. If you have a conventional oven, the temperature would be 200 degree Celsius.

Here is a quick rundown of the recipe:

Method of Preparation

  1. Stir fry spring onion and chopped chorizo in a pot on LOW heat until brown and remove from the heat. Add bread crumbs, lemon zest, salt and black pepper coarse to the pot and mix thoroughly. Boil water and add fresh spinach and cook until just wilted. Drain the spinach on paper towels, squeezing out any excess water.

Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic and gently tap with rolling pin to flatten. Transfer flatten chicken breasts to a baking paper. Repeat steps on the rest of chicken breasts.

  3. Cover flatten chicken breasts with the spinach, leaving a border around the edges. Divide and spread chorizo mixture over the spinach. Roll up chicken and secure each roll with cooking string from 1 end to the other. Coat the rolled chickens in the flour then on the beaten eggs and parmesan and bread crumbs mixture.

  4. Cover base of baking dish with a baking paper. Lightly oil the baking paper with cooking spray. Arrange coated rolled chicken in the baking dish and bake in the preheated fan forced oven set to 180 degrees Celsius for 25 to 30 minutes or until cooked through.
