Well, hey there. Happy Friday eve to you!
I am not sure what it is, but I have suddenly gotten a bit of pep back into my step. Where did it go? I have a hard time finding the answer to that question, but nevertheless I am here to share a delicious meal with you that I made last night for dinner!
Who says you can’t have a rich and decadent tasting meal on a weeknight that also doesn’t break your caloric bank?
I overloaded on the lamb over Greek Easter so I knew I wanted to stay away from the red meat (at least for a couple of days…whew) but I wanted to prepare a more exciting than usual weeknight meal to share with John Paul. I started to peruse the internet for chicken roll up recipes. I found some delicious sounding ones here and here, and I used them as a base to create my own Lady Olive-ified version.
My cousins are awesome cooks and prepared this INCREDIBLE lamb on the spit.
Almond Crusted Goat Cheese and Prosciutto Chicken Roll-Ups
5-6 Chicken breasts (pounded thin)
4 oz goat cheese
10 slices of prosciutto (I actually halved my individual slices and only used 5)
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
Salt and Pepper
Preheat your oven to 375.
Lay chicken on a flat surface. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Take one slice of prosciutto and lay it vertically on the chicken.
Take another slice and lay it horizontally. Please about 1 tbsp of cheese into the center of the horizontal slice and wrap it up. Now roll from the bottom of the chicken. Secure with a toothpick.
Make an eggwash and dredging station. Whisk eggs, mustard and milk.
Combine almond meal, flour and burger seasoning (SIDE NOTE, this burger seasoning will rock your world. I suggest you order two tins of it today, and I wish someone was paying me to say this.)
Take your chicken roll-ups and carefully dunk in the egg mixture then coat in the seasoned almond/flour mixture. Place onto a foil-lined pan.
Once you have done this for every roll-up, bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
I served mine with roasted asparagus, roasted carrots, and some contraband spanakopita leftover from Easter. Thank you Petros and Anastasia!! TGFLO Thank Goodness For Leftovers? Yep. I said it.
I will definitely make this again! I really like using almond meal in lieu of bread crumbs for a more nutrient dense meal! I would absolutely recommend this for dinner any night of the week!
Do you have any go-to chicken roll up recipes? Please share!
It feels good to be back in the saddle.
