Have you ever tasted or made a Chicken Roulade Spinach and Mushrooms.

What is a Roulade?

A Roulade can be savory or sweet. Swiss roll is an example of a sweet roulade. Traditionally found in various European cuisines, the term roulade originates from the French word rouler, meaning “to roll”.

Finely dice the onion, carrot, pepper, mushroom, and celery.

Stir in the spinach along with the apricots, seasoning, and thyme.

Set aside to cool. Once cooled, add the pine nuts and mix well.

Remove the foil and cling and allow the roulade to brown for a few minutes.

Slice, serve with gravy, and enjoy!!
