Holiday Chicken Roulade
Recipe: Holiday Chicken Roulade

Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breast halves, pounded thin to uniform thickness*
  • 4 ounces spreadable goat cheese or thinly sliced swiss cheese
  • 8 thin asparagus spears
  • 1 small red bell pepper, membranes removed and cut into 4 long strips
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • White flour, as needed, for dusting roulades

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Season chicken with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper pepper. Spread goat cheese or lay Swiss cheese slices on the rough side of the chicken cutlets, taking care not to extend beyond the breast.
  3. Place 2 asparagus spears on the cheese, one tip pointing to one side and another tip pointing to the other, the tips extending on each side of the breast. Place 1 red pepper strip, of equal length to the the cut asparagus, next to the tips. Roll up chicken breasts, securing with toothpicks if necessary.
  4. Dust each roulade completely with flour. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil and butter then brown all sides of chicken. With tongs, carefully remove from oil and place on a baking sheet, seam side down. Bake 15 minutes, or until cooked through, and remove toothpicks if used.
  5. If desired, strain pan juices and drizzle over chicken. Serve chicken whole or cut into medallions. If cutting into medallions, a sharp, serrated knife works best.

*Avoid the pre-packed, hand-filleted, thin-sliced chicken. It sounds like it would be ideal for the recipe but usually the fillets are irregular.
