Rolled-up meat, fish, or sponge is called a roulade. It is traditionally stuffed with a soft filling, cooked or served, and typically rolled into a spiral shape.

A small bag of fresh spinach – to cook the spinach, bring a pot with about two cups of water to boil. Add the washed and drained spinach and cover for five minutes or until wilted. Drain it well and squeeze out any moisture from the leaves before using them in this recipe.

I suggest you use the whole bag of spinach because it’s so cheap and versatile.

You can also substitute other greens such as chard, kale, or turnip greens, mushrooms etc.

This recipe also calls for one large ripe mango that has been cut into small cubes. You don’t want to use a sour slice since this will ruin the dish.

You shall need chicken breast – boneless, skinless, and pounded. A chicken roulade is a dish where you take a chicken breast, pound it flat, and stuff it with vegetables, cheese, and even other meats by rolling it tightly into a cylinder with the stuffing inside. You then top the roulades with cheese or other sauces.
