Involtini Di Pollo Alla Salvia (Chicken Roulades With Sage)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

A recipe from the blog Bellalimento (Be patient while crisping your bacon, you’ll want that nice texture and crunch on the outside.)


  1. Once you have thinly pounded out your chicken breasts, cut each breast into two strips {slightly wider than your bacon slices}. Season chicken strips with salt and pepper.
  2. Place 2 sage leaves onto each strip of chicken. Roll chicken strips. Roll bacon over chicken roll and secure with toothpicks. Continue until all pieces are rolled.
  3. Into a frying pan add olive oil and heat over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add chicken roulades and cook, turning frequently, until bacon has brown/crisped on all sides. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for approximately 10-15 minutes until chicken has cooked through {cooking time will depend on thickness of chicken}.

Delicious! Moist and flavourful chicken. The only change I would make is to reduce the amount of sage as we found the sage flavour to be a bit too strong. We loved the bacon/chicken combination.
