Chicken Caprese Rollups

Quick and easy summer food is the cook’s best friend; these Chicken Caprese Roll-ups fit that bill nicely.  With as few as five ingredients, lunch or a light dinner is wrapped up (pun intended) in mere minutes.

Of course, like anything, you could get fancy with these. But there is no need for that unless you want to do so.

For instance, I’ve made them drizzling on just balsamic vinegar straight from the bottle; other times I’ve made them with a balsamic reduction I usually have on hand in the refrigerator.

I’ve melted the fresh mozzarella; I’ve left it “raw.” I’ve used plain baked chicken breasts; I’ve drizzled balsamic on the chicken.

It’s completely up to you to come up with your own favorite combination, so experiment with how you like them best. The one thing is certain, they are quick, easy, delicious and filling. Who could want more?

About P ~ The Saucy Southerner

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~
