A rolled chicken roast is always a regular on our Easter menu every year. Gone are the days of buying an expensive one from the local chicken shop. You can easily make one from scratch in no time at all and very little effort. Despite looking impressive, this is one of the easiest meals you will ever make!

What I love about it is you can change the filling to suit your tastes and what you have in your fridge. It can be as basic or as decadent as you like. Serve with some roast and steamed veggies and fresh crusty bread and your Easter dinner is sorted. Such a simple but impressive meal.

This recipes comes from The Easter Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine which was released yesterday.
