I love the chicken roll-ups my mom made for special occasions, filled with spinach and cream cheese. My own kids wouldn't eat those, so I came up with a pizza-flavored variety the whole family enjoys. —Tanja Penquite, Oregon, Ohio

"I really thought I would like this but, I just didn't. Couldn't taste the pepperoni, even though I doubled the amount. My kids wouldn't even try it. Sorry."

"I guess I am not a good "chicken roller". The chicken had no cheese in it when I took it out of the oven. It was all right, but it wasn't great. I may or may not make this again."

"Delicious! I used provolone cheese slices inside and sprinkled shredded mozzarella on top. Everyone enjoyed it."

"This was surprisingly delicious. I don't know what I expected but I didn't expect it to be so great. It was very moist. I even had leftovers the next day and they tasted even better. Served with a salad. I will be making this again. Make sure you use the pizza sauce not tomato sauce. I don't think it would taste the same. Easy to prepare."

"So simple to prepare and tastes great. I made this for dinner last night and a 1, 2 and 4 year old all cleaned their plates! That equals 2-thumbs up in my book!"

"These are great! Very simple to assemble and they taste wonderful.

I'd like to add that since I first posted this review, I have made these several times and now instead of pounding out the chicken and rolling it up, I just cut a pocket into the side of the breast and stuff the pepperoni in that way. Much easier, in my opinion! :)"

"Really good! I don't think it needed to bake as long as the recipe says though. But we really like it!"
