Stuffed Chicken Roll
Rotolo di Pollo

Mix with a spatula until thoroughly combined.
Once you butterfly a chicken using my technique, you can stuff it and roll it. It makes a delicious and spectacular dish. For the filling, I use a mix of different meats for additional flavor.
I also added about 2 lb (1 kg) of potatoes (optional) to the pan. In this recipe, I used potatoes of many different colors for more flavor. I boil the potatoes shortly before adding them to the pan and finish cooking them together with the chicken roll.
