Southwestern Chicken Roulade

Southwestern Chicken Roulade

"I have been making this for the past 5 years for company, parties, and just for my husband and I. It never fails to amaze everyone's taste buds! The chorizo is sweet yet mildly spicy, and the cheese complements the mixture of chicken and Mexican sausage. Sometimes, I use a creamy tasting Mexican cheese instead of Monterey Jack. I serve this with rice and warmed flour tortillas. Add a black bean and corn salad and you have a fabulous meal!"

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly oil an 8x8 inch pan.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the chorizo. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool completely.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together chorizo and cheese. Divide mixture into four equal measures, and place a portion in the center of each chicken breast. Fold in the sides of the chicken breasts, and roll up.
  4. Roll stuffed breasts in masa harina, and place seam-side down into the oiled pan. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven until browned, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven, cool slightly, and top each chicken roll with 1/4 cup salsa.

Marvelous! I made this recipe without changing anything(except that I didn't measure the cheese, I grated an 8 oz. block). The Masa really adds to the flavor and texture. The filling was more th...

Great recipe although I will admit I made changes. I didn't have chorizo and I was looking to use up some chicken breasts and found this recipe. I used two links of cilantro chicken sausage fr...

This was a hit with my teenagers and husband. I substituted crushed corn flakes for the masa harina...FANTASTIC! Loved the cornflake coating. In addition to the salsa, I served with sour crea...

This recipe was great! It was surprisingly easy and the chicken was so very tender. I couldn't find masa harina, so I lighty used ground corn meal. It was perfect.

I used chicken chorizo from Trader Joe's and was incredibly dissappinted that I wasted my delicious sausage on something so dry and bland. I like chorizo and masa harina so I don't know what ha...

We will definitely try this recipe again, but I will make some revisions.

Delish! Will definitely make again!

This was so terribly difficult for me to make, but it was so good. I accidentally mixed the cheese and chorizo right after browning the chorizo, so it melted immediately. It didn't seem to matte...
