Today’s recipe is brought to you in partnership with Randalls, one of my go-to neighborhood grocery stores. I teamed up with Randalls to share one of my signature recipes using their Signature Farms® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts. My garlic soy chicken roll-ups starts with thin sliced chicken rolled up with scallions, red peppers and carrots.
The chicken roll-ups are drizzled with a sweet and savory Asian-inspired pan sauce. This is one of those fun recipes that looks impressive but is actually super easy. Scroll down to find a video taking you through the whole recipe step by step!
My garlic soy chicken roll-ups recipe is inspired by a dish that we served at one of my first restaurant jobs. Chicken negimayaki is a Japanese recipe that takes thin cut chicken breast and rolls up a whole pile of tasty scallions inside. The rolls were topped with the house-made teriyaki that made that particular restaurant extra special.
This version is somewhat simplified in the sauce department. I make the same marinade fairly often to dress everything from tofu to noodles, and it makes a great pan sauce for chicken roll-ups. In addition to scallion, my rolls include some sliced bell pepper and shredded carrots. I like the extra pop of color and variation in flavor that this provides but you can absolutely swap the veggies out for any you prefer.
Asparagus would be really nice inside chicken roll-ups. Another fun idea would be to swap the bell peppers for a spicier variety – like poblano peppers or hatch chilies. I left the sauce on the thin side for this recipe, but if you prefer something with a little more body, just whisk 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of water into the pan after the chicken has finished cooking. Let the sauce simmer for a minute or two and it should thicken right up.
Garlic Soy Chicken Roll-Ups
- 2 Signature Farms Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
- 1/2 bunch scallions, roots trimmed off and sliced into thirds
- 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
- 2 tablespoons Signature SELECT ™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
- 2 tablespoons cup rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
- 2 teaspoons minced/grated fresh ginger
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Place chicken breasts down flat on cutting board and slice horizontally, forming two thin cutlets from each breast.
- Lay cutlet flat, and place some scallion, red pepper, and carrots in the center. Roll the cutlet up and secure with toothpicks. Repeat with remaining cutlets and veggies.
- Heat skillet to medium heat and coat liberally with cooking oil. When sizzling hot, place cutlets into pan and cook on each side for about 3 minutes, browning each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Combine water, soy sauce, vinegar, honey, and spices in pan and whisk together. Bring to simmer over medium-high heat, then place rolled cutlets back into pan. Cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
- Check temperature of cutlets and make sure they read 165F. When cooked through to temperature remove cutlets from pan and drizzle with sauce.
