Chicken, Ham and Cheese Roll-ups with Couscous and Peas

These will be made again! I found this recipe in an old Everyday Food magazine. The combination of all the ingredients was perfect. The only slight change was that I used chicken breasts that I had pounded a bit and then cut them into 4 strips. I was really nervous about the chicken getting done (bad experiences in the past) but it turned out fine. I also didn’t want to cut into the roll-ups and ruin the presentation!! I paired the roll-ups with couscous and peas. Enjoy!

Chicken, Ham and Cheese Roll-ups with Couscous and Peas

source: Everyday Food


Serves 4

  • 8 thin chicken cutlets (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 4 slices deli ham (about 4 ounces total), halved lengthwise
  • 12 thin slices Swiss cheese (about 4 ounces total), halved lengthwise into 24 strips
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup couscous


  1. Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place cutlets on work surface, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Spread cutlets with mustard; layer with 1 slice of ham and 2 strips of cheese. Starting at a short end, roll up cutlets; place, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet. Top each cutlet with 1 piece of remaining cheese; broil until browned and chicken is opaque throughout, 6 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring peas, butter, and 1 cup water to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in couscous. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; fluff with a fork. Serve couscous with roll-ups.
