Think of sausage rolls but with turkey and that was the inspiration for these Herby Turkey Rolls!
These rolls can be made at any time of the year with chicken. Simply poach a raw chicken breast in boiling salted water until cooked through. Drain and allow to cool before shredding between two forks.
The tomato sauce in this recipe is a brilliant base for lots of dishes like bolognese, mince, pasta, pizzas and vegetable bakes. It will also keep for at least 1 week fresh in the fridge or freeze it for 3 months.
