  • Bring broth to boil in large saucepan; gradually stir in flour. Cook 2 to 3 min. or until mixture forms stiff dough that pulls away from side of pan, stirring constantly. Cool.
  • Meanwhile, cook onions and peppers in 1 tsp. oil in medium saucepan on medium heat 3 min. or until crisp-tender. Remove from heat. Add chicken and parsley; mix lightly. Stir in cream cheese and mozzarella.
  • Place dough on lightly floured surface; knead 5 min. or until smooth and elastic. Divide into 12 equal pieces; roll each piece into 5-inch round. Spoon about 3 Tbsp. chicken mixture onto center of each round; wrap dough around filling to completely enclose filling. Roll each to resemble drumstick.
  • Heat remaining oil to 375ºF in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Add chicken roll-ups, in batches; cook 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels.

Make Ahead

Prepare dough roll-ups as directed, but do not cook. Refrigerate up to 2 days before cooking as directed. For best results, pat dough dry with paper towel before frying.
