The filling is inside pastry. I had no ricola so I put in feta, parsley and spring onions.

Mel, here is the link to the cinnamon rolls. You will love them! Don't cut back on the butter - I think that is the secret...Ultimate Cinnamon Rolls, Harvest Cinnamon Roll Recipe, Fantastic Cinnamon Rolls, Yeast Rolls, Bread Machine Recipe
They give you several options - bread machine, stand mixer, by hand, etc. I mixed the dough in my stand mixer and kneaded it by hand. Next time, I'll probably knead it in the mixer. It's getting pretty warm here and sweating on the dough will add too much salt and moisture - LOL.

And Mama - that chicken dish is beautiful. I'm definitely inspired and I'm going to make it soon!

This is my inspiration today. I took out 2 boneless chickenbreasts this morning to defrost but wasn't sure what to do with them.

I don't have spinach or cheese but I think I am going to make a breading with crumbs and fresh herbs and ...... we will see from there.

Thanks, Karen, I have googled and yahooed and hit the library. I have tried about 20 or more similar but different recipes that come close to, but nothing as melt-in-your-mouth sweet and delicious as what I made with my grandmother. I just wish I could remember all the way back to when I was 7 or 8 in her kitchen.....
