Rolled Chicken Stuffed with Parmesan and Chives

Michelle Medina


This recipe is simple but so incredibly flavorful and mouth watering. Growing up in an Italian household my Mother always made huge family Sunday dinners so we would have a protein, a huge bowl of pasta, veggie, salad, and dessert of course. We always had a large crowd because me and my 2 sisters invited a friend or boyfriend or both. Not sure how my Mom did it every Sunday but our dinners we're always soooo YUMM. This was one of the first dishes I learned how to make when I was a teenager. It's ALWAYS a HUGE hit so enjoy. Mangia!!
