MY REVIEW

Excellent roulade. Beautiful & festive presentation. Sometimes I'll sub goat cheese for the gorgonzola. Almost any nuts could be used in this dish. Next time, I might add thyme &/or oregano. I also make a basalmic-chicken broth reduction sauce. This dish is great with cherries as a sub for cranberries. I use Italian cherries, "Ciliegie di'Vignola", jarred cherries in vodka, for the filling & for the sauce.

It was just ok. Maybe I need to reduce the amount of gorgonzola cheese next time.

Made these for Christmas dinner... These were worth the work it took to put them together. My whole family raved about them!

MY REVIEW

I found this extremely difficult to put together. Once the chicken is rolled up, it's very hard to "roll" in the flour or "dip" in the egg. Mine was a mess.
