Chicken Parmigiana Roulades with Tomato Sauce

Chicken Parmigiana Roulades with Tomato Sauce

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
8 green olives, sliced into slivers
3 roasted sweet red peppers

1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp  water and seasoned with salt and pepper
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper

1/2 cup grated Parmigiano

For the sauce:
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 canned chopped tomatoes
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp anchovy sauce
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried thyme
salt and pepper

Arrange chicken pieces between two pieces of plastic and beat with a rolling pin or similar until they are 5mm thick.
Place a slice of roasted red pepper onto one of the chicken thigh.
Place a  slivers of green olives in the middle of pepper. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Roll the chicken thigh from one end to form a cylinder, securing with a cocktail stick if necessary.
Repeat the process for each of the remaining chicken thighs.

Next, dredge each thigh in the flour and tap off excess,
then dip in the egg and let excess drip off, then dredge on all sides in the bread crumbs.
Drizzle with some oil and bake in a 160C fan oven for 20 minutes.

To make the sauce:
Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and the rest of the other ingredients and bring to a boil.
Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
Reduce heat and cook until slightly thickened.

Transfer the sauce into a baking dish and arrange baked chicken thighs onto the sauce.
Sprinkle some grated Parmigiano and grill for 5-10 minutes until golden brown.

To serve, pile some salad onto each serving plate alongside some cooked spaghetti.
Cut the chicken roulades into thick slices and arrange them by the side.
Add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.


  1. sedapnya nampak sis, will definitely try . But what is anchovies sauce?

    1. Hi Tasha,
      You can substitute anchovies sauce with salted anchovies in oil.
      If tak suka anchovies, you can omit it from the recipe.
