Chicken Roll-Ups

I love this recipe … not sure where it came from, sorry !

Chicken Roll-ups

Cut chicken breasts or tenders into thin strips (5-7cm wide and the length of the breast or tender). Pound them out to make them thin and even.
Place strips of ham and cheese along the length of the chicken and roll them up, holding in place with a toothpick.
Dip the rolls in egg and then breadcrumbs and bake in a pan (without the rolls touching) on 180C/350F until no longer pink, usually about 30 mins.

Baked Stuffed Chicken Breasts

This makes a chicken breast with stuffing inside. Very easy to do and presents nicely.

 

Baked Stuffed Chicken Breasts

8 boneless skinless chicken breast

salt

pepper

2-3 tbsp. butter

1/3 cup onion, finely chopped

1 tsp. garlic, minced

2 cups dry breadcrumbs

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1/4 cup parsley, chopped

1/2 tsp. rosemary, crumbled

1/2 tsp. dried sage, crumbled

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp.pepper

1/3 – 2/3 cup chicken broth

Flatten chicken breast to about 3/8 inch thick. Season with salt and pepper. Heat butter in skillet over medium high heat, add and cook onion and garlic until soft but not brown, about 5 minutes.

Add into remaining ingredients. Stir in chicken broth. The stuffing should be moist enough to hold together in a crumbly ball when firmly squeezed in the hand. Do not over moisten. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

Lightly oil a 13×9 baking dish. Place 1/4 cup of stuffing in the center of each breast, press lightly to compact it. bring the top and bottom flaps of the chicken up and over the stuffing, slightly overlapping the ends, then fold up the sides to enclose stuffing completely. lay packets seam side down in prepared dish (I just folded the sides over – some of the stuffing fell out during the cooking process but it still tasted fine). Brush chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Bake until the chicken is lightly browned and feels firm when pressed, about 30 minutes at 350F/180C
