Chicken Roulade stuffed with ham, yellow peppers and sauce

Posted on February 18, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

This Chicken Roulade looks good.  So good.  So amazingly good.  This Chicken Roulade tastes good. So good.  So amazingly good.

Ingredients:

  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 10 slices of ham
  • 1-2 peppers (whichever color you want)
  • 5 slices of cheese
  • a handful of fresh basil
  • olive oil or butter
  • flour, 2-3 eggs and breadcrumbs to coat chicken
  • salt & pepper

Preparation Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C).  Place the chicken in between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or a ziplock bag. Beat the chicken with a meat mallot (or a heavy frying pan) until it’s about 1/8 – 1/4 inch thin.  Very therapeutic after a stressful day of work!
  2. Add the ham.IMG_1485
  3. Wash, and slice the peppers in strips. IMG_1487
  4. Add the cheese you prefer and basil.  One of my guests couldn’t eat cheese (awful, I know!)  So I made a quick bechamel sauce (fancy word for white sauce).  I made my sauce by melting 1 1/2 tbsp (20 grams) butter in a saucepan.  I then added 2 tbsp (20 grams) of flour and mixed the two together to make a roux.  I slowly added 1 cup (about 200ml) milk while stirring over the heat.  This allowed the sauce to thicken up.  I seasoned the bechamel sauce with salt and added the chopped basil.IMG_1488
  5.  Then roll up the chicken.  Because I used a smaller piece of chicken, I needed the help of a few handy, dandy toothpicks to keep the roulade in tack!IMG_1489
  6. Allow the chicken to go for a dip in seasoned flour, egg and breadcrumbs.IMG_1499
  7. At this point, take any toothpicks out…. otherwise your guests might have an unpleasant surprise! Heat olive oil or butter in a frying pan.
  8. Fry them for 1-2 minutes on both sides to give the chicken a beautiful color 🙂IMG_1500
  9. Place the chicken in a baking dish lined with parchment paper… or simply butter the dish.  Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the juices run clear.    IMG_1507
  10. Once they were cooked, I sliced the chicken and served them with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables.  Too bad we were enjoying the food so much I forgot to take a picture!!!

Yum Yum.  I told you this Chicken Roulade is good. So good.  So amazingly good!
