Chicken Roulade Appetizers

1 Lightly grease 15 x 10-inch (40 x 25 cm) jelly-roll pan or baking sheet with edge. Line with parchment paper or foil, shiny side up. Coat generously with butter or margarine and flour lightly.
2 Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
3 In medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter or margarine. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Add milk. Cook and stir until mixture comes to boil; simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
4 Beat egg yolks, adding a few drops hot sauce, then beat egg yolk mixture into sauce. Season with salt, nutmeg and pepper. Pour into medium bowl and cool slightly.
5 Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff but not dry. Gently fold into sauce. Spread mixture in prepared pan.
6 Bake in a 375°F (190°C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and top feels firm. Let stand 5 minutes. Invert roulade on clean tea towel.
7 Carefully peel off paper in strips. Cool completely. Cut crosswise in half to make 2 rectangles, 10 inches (25 cm) wide.


1 Combine all ingredients. Spread filling over both rectangles.
2 Starting with a 10 inch (25 cm) side, roll up both rectangles. Wrap separately with plastic film and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. (May be prepared 2 days ahead.) Cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) slices.
