Easy Chicken Breast Roll Ups

Chicken is my favorite meat to enjoy. I'm always looking for new ways to use chicken breast. These chicken roll ups are stuffed with shallots, bacon and Parmesan, they are so flavorful, tender and juicy. If you love easy chicken recipes, these will sure become your new favorite!
Easy Chicken Breast Roll Ups


  • 3 chicken breasts (skinless, boneless)
  • 2 shallots (sliced)
  • 6 slices bacon (cooked)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Prep time:
15 minutes
Cook time:
20 minutes
Total time:
35 minutes
Yield: 3 servings | Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 35 minutes


1. Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally (it's easier to do when they are still partially frozen). Place chicken pieces in batches in a large plastic bag (or between two sheets of plastic wrap) and pound with a meat mallet on both sides until thin. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder on both sides.

2. Heat half of the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, add sliced shallots and cook until soft, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Place one piece of chicken on a flat working surface. Put a teaspoonful of cooked shallots, a slice of bacon (folded in half), and a teaspoonful of grated Parmesan right in the middle. Roll the chicken up so that the filling is inside the roll. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

4. Heat the rest of the oil in the same skillet. Brown the rolls on all sides. Reduce the heat, cover and cook for another 5-7 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve.
