Cranberry & Spinach Chicken Rollatini

One of the first items I wanted to make was Chicken Rollatini. Inspired by the Zucchini stuffed Rollatini on, I made a few swaps with spinach and cranberries to make it a bit more “thanksgiving-y”. Is that a thing? I’m making that a thing.

Cranberry & Spinach Chicken Rollatini


  • 4 Chicken Breasts, cut in half lengthwise to make 8 cutlets.
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup Romano cheese
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 Tbs olive oil
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded (or grated) Parmesan cheese


1. Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees. Heat a pan/skillet on stove and add olive oil, saute garlic for 2-3 minutes until browned. Add Romano cheese, spinach, and cranberries and stir to combine. Remove from heat and allow to cool enough to handle.

2. Season your cutlets with salt and pepper, and lay flat on your work space. Then, in a small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

3. Spoon the cheese mixture onto the chicken cutlets and spread evenly over the cutlet. Roll each cutlet, dip into the breadcrumb mixture, and thoroughly coat. Place in a sprayed baking dish. Once all cutlets are rolled, dipped and placed in your baking dish, give the tops a once over with the cooking spray.

4. Bake at 450 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes.


Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!


  • I’ve never actually smoked a day in my life. #frosty #frostythesnowman #glamfrosty #winter #wintermakeup
  • One of the reasons I liked this makeup so much was the incredibly simple nose. I’ve tried some looks in the past and I don’t know if it was the white face, orange nose, or just my lack of makeup experience, but I hated them. Instead of trying to literally draw a carrot, this is just a nod in that direction. Also, I’m not one for glitter but I really dig these eyes! Good thing I like them, because I still have glitter on my face. #glitter #frosty #wintermakeup
  • Sticking with my winter theme, it’s Frosty! Ok, this one is a great example of why I love the internet. I saw an AMAZING frosty photo on an Instagram feature account and took a screenshot because I was dying to recreate it. Normally I make sure I have the artists handle in the screenshot so I can tag them if I ever do try it, but somehow missed it this time. To find her, I took to YouTube to find @victorialyn ’s tutorial, and I’m completely blown away with not only the makeup, but the production quality of her videos. I know how much time and effort something like that takes and they are so much fun to watch, even if you don’t plan on doing the makeup in the tutorial. I love finding new artists to follow and be inspired by! #frosty #frostythesnowman #winter
  • The last look at my Frostbite! What other injury makeups could be considered "Holiday"? or at least timely for winter? Or should I do something more glam next? I have half a mind to save more gory winter looks for January when i'm no longer feeling the warm and fuzzies when it snows! #winter #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #sfx #sfxmua
  • "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
Im really pleased with how this turned out! I know it's no super glamorous but creating actual injuries and skin conditions is a great challenge. I'll spare you the reference material, but it was fun trying to re-create the blistering, as gross as that sounds. Stay warm my friends! #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #winterwonderland #sfxmakeup #sfxmua
  • "Baby it's cold outside."
This look inspired by a 3 hour drive in a blizzard last weekend. It actually wasn't too bad, mostly just excruciatingly slow, but living in SD, I know how dangerous it can be going off the road in bad conditions. #frostbite #SFX #sfxmakeup #brrrrrr #sfxwound
  • “Oh Chucky look at us. We belong dead”
Last one of Tiffany.... which iconic horror villain should I do next? Tell me your favorites! #horrormovies #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #horrorfan
  • “I’ll kill anybody, but I’ll only sleep with someone I love.”
A girl has to have standards!!! 😂
Personally I loved Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine, how about you? #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #chuckycosplay
  • "Barbie, eat your heart out."
You can't do Chucky without Tiffany! I apparently have super thick eyebrows because I felt they were incredibly difficult to cover properly, though I probably just need more practice blocking them out. I also know the doll didn't have bangs, but the actress did, so I felt like this blonde wig still did the trick. #brideofchucky #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #tiffanyvalentine #cosplay
