    Yay, a recipe fit for the healthy, no artificial ingredients and made from whole foods. However, brown sugar is just processed white sugar with the molasses added back in (all these years I thought it was less processed) a good addition would be rapadura sugar (dried sugar cane juice) and check the label of the fish sauce for MSG. Thanks, will make this one on the weekend. Have a good one : ) x xReplyCancel

    • it’s a great way to use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. Ooh yes the pumpkin bake is so delicious, and that’s coming from somebody that dislikes pumpkin :) ReplyCancel

Healthy Spinach Chicken Roll

My local butcher sells a really yummy spinach, cream cheese and bacon chicken roll wrapped in puff pastry, it is very yummy, but pricey and not so healthy.  I love buying things like these that I can purchase, pop in the oven for 30 minutes, make a few veges and dinner is done, a simple […]

    instead of browning in the pan, you could spray with oil and sprinkle some seasoning over the top too! or roll in buttered bread crumbs.ReplyCancel

  • Ally

    Looks amazing. Perhaps throw in some garlic and onion into the cream cheese too. I’m going to have to try this too. Thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Maryandlil

    yum that looks delicious!ReplyCancel

  • Gayle

    I made something similar a few weeks ago without the cream cheese, but instead of a roll I make it in a loaf tin like a meatloaf. I put prosciutto in the base, then half filled with chicken breast mince, then a layer of garlicky baby spinach, then more chicken mince. It was great. I served it withc pureed roasted capsicum, next time I’ll probably put a layer of roasted capsicum in it.ReplyCancel

    • Gayle

      I just realised after seeing my picture, I also put sauteed mushrooms and leek in it.ReplyCancel

      • rachel

        How long do you bake it for Gayle? The same sort of timing as Kat, 40-45 mins at 180?
        Thanks, R.ReplyCancel

  • Penny Davidson

    My 9yo daughter helps me make something similar but we take thin slices of chicken breast, spread cream cheese in the middle, add some apricots (canned or dried, we’ve even put craisins and macadamias in the middle) roll up the breast then wrap it in a folded sheet of filo pastry and bake at 180 for 15-20mins. We make enough for a couple of meals and freeze the others. The pastry round the outside is a favourite in this house and much lower in fat content than puff pastry (although I made them with puff the other day and the kids loved them)ReplyCancel

  • Nicole Macey

    Hmmm yum! That looks so delicious! I knew my family wouldn’t eat that though, so I made my own version of this (closer to what you said the original was like) and my family thought it was awesome!!!! I blogged about it on my blog. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Have you made this a week in advanced and just left it in the freezer before?ReplyCancel

  • Lucy

    Do you need to defrost before baking or do you bake straight from the freezer?ReplyCancel

  • Lyn Head

    I’ve made this twice now, second time I added some sautéed mushrooms and toasted pine nuts – I put them between the cream chees and spinach – delicious!ReplyCancel

        We had it last night, it was very tasty, I think when I make it next I might make more sauce for it though as it was very tasty but there wasn’t enough of it :) ReplyCancel

  • [...] Thursday – Creamy Chicken and Pumpkin Pasta [...]ReplyCancel

  • Amanda White

    Made this for dinner tonight – yum…it was delicious!!
    The addition of the pumpkin really stepped it up ;-) . I only had spaghetti so used that instead, also didn’t have seeded mustard so used a smaller amount of Hot English, think Dijon would also be nice. The only other change I made was to add some parmesan cheese. Definitely will be making this again and yes probably a little more sauce as the pasta soaks it up.
    Thanks Katrina for sharing :-) ReplyCancel

    • The spaghetti would of been a fun element, I also like your idea of using parmesan, so please your family enjoyed itReplyCancel

    Thanks for this recipe, it has been a hit with the family. Which is fortunate, as I took a risk and made four times the quantity, and froze them for later. They defrosted and reheated really well, and are on my list for my next bulk cooking day.ReplyCancel
