Chicken-Turkey Rouladen

I know, this sounds weird, but trust me, it worked. Don just takes an idea and runs with it. He got it in his head on Thanksgiving that he would make something amazing with both chicken and turkey and…he did.

Ingredients for this experiment included:

  • turkey breast
  • chicken breast
  • bacon
  • pineapple
  • honey
  • mozzarella cheese
  • chili garlic paste (this is amazing stuff people)
  • tomato paste
  • salt and pepper
  • onion powder
  • olive oil

Pound your chicken and turkey flat.

Start with a layer of bacon, next add your chicken (or turkey, doesn’t really matter probably.)

Add the cheese, salt, pepper, and a little onion powder.

Add another layer of meat.

Add the tomato paste, chili paste, and pineapple, and drizzle honey over it all.

It’s kind of like building a pizza.

Next, roll your meat into a log. (We are thinking for next time that a sheet of syran wrap under the bacon might have made the rolling process easier. Or it could have been an epic disaster. I’ll let you know if we ever remember to try it.)

Ahh, what a sight. A giant pile of meat. What could be better? Well, maybe our Cranberry-Apple Pie.

Use cotton twine to tie it all together.

Drizzle a little olive oil over the top and bake at 350 for about two hours or until your internal temperature reaches 180 degrees.

(That’s the new oven BTW. Thank you Martin family!)

Now that’s just pretty. See all the layers? Mmm…you know you want to try it.

Serve with your choice of side dishes.

We made butternut squash mash, green bean casserole, and a new homemade cranberry-apple-cinnamon sauce. Stay tuned for that recipe in another post.

Not eating meat is a decision, eating meat is an instinct.

  1. That does look delicious. Remind me sometime to tell you about my Aunt’s butternut squash recipe we had at her house this last weekend. I can’t wait for the cranberry sauce recipe!
