Made these yesterday, and was really unsure about the tomatoes so used chargrilled peppers instead. I was really pleased with the result and will definitely make again. Next time I think I will try them with both peppers and sunblush tomatoes, or maybe with salmon, crab and anchovy??

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?
