  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a glass baking dish with vegetable oil cooking spray.
  2. Lay the chicken breasts on a work surface and spread evenly with the chorizo. Sprinkle with dill, breadcrumbs, and pine nuts. Roll tightly, brush with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place seam side down into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until chicken has cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove chicken rolls from oven, and slice into 1 inch thick slices. Pour 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil in a frying pan and place over medium-high heat. Fry chicken pieces for 1 to 2 minutes on each side until lightly browned.

Followed recipe. Pre cooked chorizo as per recommendations. Added garlic powder and cubes of Emmentaler Swiss cheese. 10 extra minutes of cooking. Turned out very moist and flavorful. Will cook again.

Pretty good but very very greasy. I pounded the chicken breasts as thinly as I could, added the stuffing, folded, and secured with toothpicks; the stuffing would have fallen out had I tried to slice it and pan fry. I ended up baking for about 40 minutes. Good but not great. Thanks!

I made this and really liked it. I added some cheese and COOKED the chorizo before using it. Cheap Chorizo has a lot of fat that needs to be cooked out before eating. Also I don't it's real safe to put pork sausage in the middle of a roll up without precooking it.

I altered the recipe slightly. I used Andouille sausage instead of Chorizo and also added some sliced swiss cheese before rolling the chicken. I added a drizzle of brown gravy at the end which made the dish more moist. It was delicious!

I was looking for something different tonight that used minimal ingredients as we just returned from vacation and I had very little to choose from. This fit the bill perfectly! It was quite easy to make and very tasty. I followed recipe exactly, except I did sprinkle some garlic powder on the slices and then some very finely grated swiss cheese. This made a pretty presentation and hubby said we could have these again anytime!

Very easy to do. My husband enjoyed. We eat a lot of chicken so any new way to prepare it is a good thing. Since then, I've also used hot Italian sausage and works out well. Have made several times!

Loved this recipe!!! I made it for my hubby and it's been a weekly favorite since! I used turkey sausage instead since I don't eat chorizo, but the dish had such a nice flavor. Yum! Sever it with plain rice and a veggie, and your beau will be begging for thirds!

I made this yesterday and it was yummy. I cut back on the fat I used soyrizo which is a soy based chorizo. I couldn't really taste the dill or the pinenuts so next time I'll leave them out and add some cheese. Since I cooked mine a little too long, they were a bit dry so I drizzled it with a little salsa verde to moisten it up
