  1. Whizz the chicken and garlic in a processor until the chicken is minced. Tip in the bacon, sundried tomatoes and basil. Pulse for 5 secs to just mix through. Season well.

Spread half the chicken mixture along the middle of one of the pastry strips, then roll up the pastry, pinching the ends together to seal. Using a sharp knife, cut into 2.5cm long pieces. Repeat with the remaining pastry strip. Can be frozen, uncooked, for up to 1 month.

Delicious! Even a hit with my fussy 3 year old. I froze most of them once they were well cooled. Will definitely be making again.

These are so easy and absolutely delicious! Not usually a fan of sausage rolls but these are special. Instead of sundried tomatoes I used a little tomato paste, just right.

These little summer rolls were a delight on our Good Friday "walk and picnic" with friends. I am not a big fan of sundried tomatoes so I replaced these with chargrilled red peppers in oil - irresistible!!

I used my new extremely powerful food processor and the chicken was mush in 2 seconds ! the rolls tasted like hot sawdust! Disgusting.!

Thhe first time I made these they were beautiful but perhaps a little dry. Second time I tried adding a sauce inside but the chicken still absorbed it all! was lovely though and one i will keep making forever!

Have made these again and again. The chicken should be raw. I used dried tomatoes which I can buy from my market. They are marinated with garlic and italian herbs. The family loves them and they freeze really well. I haven't got a food processor but used a blender.

ms1847 I think the chicken is raw, that's what I did anyway. I think it would be too dry to start off with cooked chicken.

should the chicken be cooked first?

excellent. made for a party and everyone loved them. I froze them raw and then cooked them on the day.

I had to use turkey mince, because I don't have a food processor and I couldn't find chicken mince. I cooked half the batch and froze the rest. The batch i cooked from frozen actually tasted slightly better, maybe because they had longer in the oven? Boyfriend and friends said they were the best sausage rolls they had ever had!

Use oven-dried or oven roasted tomatoes instead of sun-dried - in any recipe. Most chefs do. Keep them in oil same as sun-dried.

Made these totally dairy free with pastry i made. Really nice altho a tad garlicky so maybe my clove was just a bit too big!

Really easy to make and everyone who had them gave positive comments. Will def make again.

These are lovely, i used tomato puree instead of sundried and dropped in a couple of mushrooms too (can't have anything without mushrooms!) and they went down a treat! Will make again.

These were so easy and delicious. I agree with the idea of roasted red capsicum. I think it would also be another fantastic easy option. In fact, the list is endless. I used chicken mince as I had it in the freezer and they were great. Both husband and friends loved them. Served with sweet and sour sauce mixed with greek yoghurt. A keeper.

Is the chicken and rashers cooked before they are minced in the processor? A bit confused on the point.

I made these to the recipe and will never buy sausage rolls from a shop again! Gorgeous.
