Delicious Chicken Zucchini Rolls

I had so much fun creating and eating this recipe, however it was a little fiddly. I would recommend this one when you have a little bit more time up your sleeve. You don't need a lot, just a little. It is delicious and was beautiful served on a bed of rocket as it weltered the rocket leaves. It is full of nutrition and it a beautifully balanced meal.

Enjoy.
