Savory chicken rolls with ham and provolone cheese

For tonight, not your usual boring chicken dinner.
These chicken rolls with ham and cheese, saute' in white wine,  make a fun and delicious meal for your family


With a busy daily schedule it's useful to have some easy and quick dinner recipes, especially if they can be prepared ahead of time. So here is one for you to add to that list.
I made these chicken rolls with ham and cheese yesterday before picking up the kids from school. I knew what was coming up for me in the afternoon. In addition to the usual homework and violin practice, my kids had a basketball game, and a loooong baseball practice. Two different locations, obviously! Which meant A LOT of driving around in traffic. We made it home really late, all exhausted and really hungry. Luckily I planned ahead of time, so I only had to warm up the chicken rolls, dress the salad and voila', dinner was ready in no time!
My kids devoured these rolls in two minutes. Deliciously filled with ham and cheese, saute' in white wine and aromatic herbs. Savory, quick and homemade.


Ingredients: serving 4

  • 8 thin slices chicken breast (total about 1.25 lb, 550 gr)
  • 8 slices (4.5 oz, 130 gr) of ham
  • 8 slices (6 oz, 185 gr) of provolone cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • a few sage leaves
  • 2 rosemary sprigs
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) of white wine
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt

Preparation time: 40 minutes
Directions:
1. Cut the chicken breast in 8 thin slices. Pound the  slices to make them thinner and more even. I use plastic wrap to cover the chicken, so that you don't get your kitchen counter all messy.

2. Place one slice of ham and one of cheese (cut it in half if necessary) over each slice of chicken.
Roll up starting from the smallest side, and secure with a toothpick.

3. In a large pan, saute' the crushed garlic clove, in a few tablespoons of oil, with the rosemary and the sage.


4. Add the chicken rolls. Cook over medium-high heat for a couple of minutes. Turn the rolls over and cook for another few minutes.

5. Salt to taste. Add the white wine. Cover the pan and cook the chicken for another 20 minutes over medium heat.

Remove the toothpick, and if you like, cut in slices. Serve with your favorite veggies.
Buon Appetito!
