Greek Chicken Roulade

So my question became what do I serve after we start off with the tzatziki. I have made this tomato sauce once before and could not get over how good it tasted. So part one was figured out. Now what to serve it over. I also remembered that I have previously made a couple of stuffed chicken dishes with feta. I did these in two different ways and the links to show you each preparation are below.

Greek Chicken Roulade

  • Butterfly the chicken breasts cutting them horizontally.  Spice both sides of the chicken breasts with all the spices.  
    Lay the chicken out on a board.  Top with a few pieces of spinach and then top with the feta cheese.  Start to make the roulade by rolling from the small end until fully rolled up. Take butcher twine and tie up the breasts.
    Begin by searing the breasts in a skillet until brown on each side.  Place in a 350 degree oven and cook for 25 – 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and let rest for a couple of minutes.
    Serve with herb rice and top with the tomato sauce.
