Cooking Tip: It's easier to roll up a thin chicken cutlet, so pound them using a meat mallet if necessary. Check out how I get thin chicken cutlets in the post, How to Make Thin Chicken Cutlets.
Step 1: How to Prepare Stuffed Chicken Cutlets
Lay the chicken cutlets on a piece of parchment paper. Make sure they are thin by using a meat mallet if necessary.
Step 2: Spread the Stuffing on Top
Spread about 2 tablespoons of prepared Stove Top Stuffing mix on top of each thin chicken cutlet.
Step 3: Roll the Chicken Cutlets Up
Very carefully, roll the chicken cutlets up and secure with a toothpick. If you have some stuffing come out at the ends, it's okay, just gently push it back in.
Heat the butter and oil in a heavy cast iron pan. Add the chicken roll ups to the pan and lightly brown them. Remove them to a plate and set aside while you prepare the gravy.
Step 4: Make the Homemade Gravy
In the same cast iron pan, add the butter and allow it to melt. Then add the flour. Cook the flour for a minute or two until slightly browned. Then add the chicken broth and cook until thickened.
Step 5: Baking Instructions
Place the rolled up chicken cutlets back in the pan with the gravy. Then place the cast iron pan in a preheated 385 degree oven.
Step 6: When are Chicken and Stuffing Roll Ups Done?
Allow the chicken cutlets to cook for about 20 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Use a digital meat thermometer to check.
