weekday simple recipe: pizza rolled chicken

chicken pizza roll up

So school has started for my 6 year old today and now its back to the good old grind and routine! That does not mean we were not on a routine over the summer, but we were just a little more of “go with the flow”, but now with school starting it’s hard to do that, so I have been gathering recipes and planning out my week for dinners. I made this over the summer for my family and they enjoyed it so much that I am adding it to my weekly dinners.  Hope you will enjoy it as much as my family and  I did!
