|Ingredients:||4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
small jar of artichoke hearts
a generous measure of dried cranberries
sharp cheddar, grated
garlic-flavored olive oil
|Preparation:||I tried the chicken roll-up thing. Got 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
and beat them fairly thin and flat.
Took one small jar of artichoke hearts and dices them fine. Added about an
equal volume of Feta cheese, a generous measure of dried cranberries and
enough sharp cheddar grated into the bowl to hold the filing
together. Moistened this mass with garlic-flavored olive oil. I laid a
generous layer of this mixture on a flattened chicken breast and rolled it
up. I put so much of that filling on, I could not get more than about 1.5
actual revolutions. I pinned them with round toothpicks. As it turned
out, I used all the filling on those 4 chicken breasts. Baked them at
Barbara Monroe's place, the cute redhead that came with me to the Gather
and the Cook-off. Before baking, she gave them a good brushing with a
dressing of some sort. You get it in little packages and add olive oil and
balsamic vinegar. I can get specifics if anyone needs. Baked them in an
open casserole dish for about 45 minutes at about 350.
That and a green salad, and a dry white wine and a few candles was dinner.
They were far better than we had any right to expect. I guess this is
Martin's philosophy of cooking: take good ingredients, blend them
carefully, don't fuck anything up. The flavors of cranberry, feta cheese
and artichoke hearts works very well together.
Except for the cranberries, this would also be a good low carb meal.
