Herbed Chicken Rolls in Cherry Sauce

Here comes a winner-winner chicken dinner from my personal cookbook. This chicken breast is rolled up with herbed garlic butter, then cooked in a tart cherry sauce. It's a beautiful meal for these colder evenings... and I think quite pleasant visually! Enjoy!

You can swap out the cherry sauce with others, if you'd like. I've used pomegranate sauce, onion relish, and even barbecue sauce. :)

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 2 servings



  1. Mix one tablespoon of softened butter with 1/4 cup chopped parsley. Set aside.
  2. Butterfly the chicken breast and open it up so it's one flat piece. Cut it into 2 pieces. Lay them between sheets of plastic wrap and pound them until they are flattened to about 1/4 inch.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper, then spread the parsley mix on top.
  4. Roll them up tight (you can use toothpicks to keep them closed) and dust with flour all over.
  5. Add the other tablespoon of butter to a large pan over low heat. Add the chicken to the pan.
  6. Cook the chicken rolls for a total of about 25 minutes, making sure to flip to cook every side.
  7. Add some chopped vegetables while you're cooking the chicken to take advantage of the cooking juices, and make yourself an easy side dish.
  8. Mix the cherry syrup and water in a small bowl, then pour over the chicken. Bring the mixture to a boil, then shut off the heat. The flour that was on the chicken will turn this mixture into a lovely thick sauce. Give the sauce a taste. If it's too sour, add up to 1/2 a tablespoon of sugar to balance it out.
  9. Plate the chicken and veg. Drizzle the cherry sauce on top of the chicken, then slice to expose the beautiful herb swirls.
