Chicken Cheese rolls are very simple to prepare, involving at minimum a slice of bread and cheese. More often, added ingredients are placed into a filling mixture. But what distinguishes the Lebanese version is the type of cheese and dough used. Hence, this is not a traditional dish, but it is certainly flavorful and one of the best in Lebanon.
