The stars were aligned!!! I had some of my favorite ingredients on-hand and put together this simple yet elegant chicken dish during our last snow storm. Pounding the chicken ensures a tender chicken breast. Browning the chicken before baking gives a beautiful brown color and really holds the bundle together. Finishing in the oven, the chicken cooks evenly throughout and plumps the chicken leaving it very juicy.
- 2 Boneless, skinless chicken breast pounded thin
|Butterflied and pounded thin to tenderize before filling with savory ingredients.|
|Rolled together from all sides and secured with toothpicks. You will be surprised how nicely these cook in the pan without falling apart!|
|Toss pasta or cut vegetables in the same pan to coat with the savory drippings.|
|Browned on all sides and ready for the oven, this could be done ahead of time.|
|Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes when done baking.|
