These chicken rolls are juicy,and flavorful. You can serve them with the mustard sauce or sprinkle your favorite Italian seasonings over the pepperoni and serve with marinara sauce. My family really enjoyed them, but my husband said to put even more pepperoni in the chicken next time. Great suggestion!

Update: I discovered that Basil Pesto is fantastic on these rolls. I don't know why I haven't tried it before. It is by far my favorite sauce for this recipe. Try it!
