Are you bored with chicken? Love garlic? Look no further! These absolutely delicious, protein packed, keto friendly and low carb Cheesy Garlic Chicken Rollups will take your meal prep to a new level! The best part? This recipe is super easy to make with simple ingredients.
For this recipe you’ll need 3 bowls. One for your bread crumb mix, one for your egg mix, and one for your stuffing mix.
In your first bowl (bread crumb mix) add 1 cup of bread crumbs and 8 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Mix those together and put that bowl off to the side.
In your next bowl (egg mix) add 1 jumbo whole egg and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Mix those together and put that bowl off to the side with your other bowl.
In your last bowl (stuffing mix) add 7 ounces of cream cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons of onion powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder, and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic. Mix those together with a hand mixer until creamy. Do you need a hand mixer? No, it’ll just make this part a bit easier. Pro tip? Let your cream cheese soften before mixing.
Cheesy Garlic Chicken Rollups
Take out 2 pounds of chicken breast and cut them into cutlets (thin). You should get 2 cutlets from every chicken breast.
Place your cutlets onto a cutting board, cover each piece with some plastic wrap, and use a meat tenderizer to thin them out even more. The goal should be to make them all the same size which will help you easily portion them out later!
Dunk each cutlet into your egg mix then into your bread crumb mix. Place your coated piece onto a lined baking sheet for easy clean up. Make sure you let the excess egg mix drip off before moving to your bread crumb mix.
Repeat until all of your cutlets are coated.
Add some of your stuffing mix into each piece and roll them up as tight as you can. You can secure your cheesy garlic chicken rollups after rolling them with a couple toothpicks.
Put them in the oven on 350F/176C for around 35 minutes.
