Mike's Stuffed Chicken Breasts Recipe
Category: Other /
4 chicken breasts, skinless and bonel; ess
1 salt and fresh ground black to tast; e
4 thin slices processed ham
4 thin slices mozzarella chees
4 cooked asparagus spears
1 flour for dusting
3 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon oil
6 tablespoon marsala
2 tablespoon chicken stock
1 asparagus spears to garnish
Place the chicken pieces between pieces of damp waxed paper and beat/roll with a rolling pin until thin. Season with salt and pepper, place a slice of ham and cheese and an asparagus spear on each breast. Roll each breast up carefully, wind a piece of cotton string around each to hold it and dust with the flour.
Heat 2 T of the butter and the oil to a saute pan and fry the chiken rolls until golden and done. About 15 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Remove the string and transfer to a hot serving dish and keep warm.
Add the marsala, stock and remaining butter to the pan, bring to a boil and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, while scaping the bottom of the pan. Spoon this over the rolls and garnish with asparagus spears.
The recipe calls for Bel Paese cheese. I never could find it, so used a thin slice of Monterey Jack, Swiss or Mozzarella. Like the Mozzarella the best. Doubt that you have marsala wine, so I used half brandy and half sherry. Or all of one of the other depending on what I hadn't already drank up. A sweet sherry effect is what you are looking for.
OK, that is as fast as I can type. May I go get a cup of coffee now?
