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!


  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
