Chicken and Spinach Braciole

SERVINGS : 4 PEOPLE COOK TIME : MINUTES PREP TIME : MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 8 slices prosciutto
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 lemon, wedged

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a skillet, toast pinenuts over medium high heat until nice and brown. Transfer to a medium sized bowl and reserve for later.
  2. Add olive oil to the skillet. When it begins to shimmer, add shallot and cook until tender and translucent.
  3. Add spinach and continue to cook until wilted. Transfer mixture to the bowl with the pinenuts.
  4. Add breadcrumbs and cheese to the bowl and mix to combine. Slowly add enough chicken stock to moisten the mixture. You may not need the entire 3T.
  5. Pound the chicken between waxed paper to about 1/4” thick.
  6. Place 1 slice prosciutto on each piece of chicken, then top with about 2-3T of the mixture. Leave about 1/2” at one end empty.
  7. Gently roll the chicken toward the empty side and secure the end with a toothpick (or roll with kitchen string).
  8. Wipe the skillet clean and then heat remaining olive oil over medium high until it shimmers. Add chicken, toothpick side up. Brown for at least 4 minutes. Then gently remove toothpicks, and flip to the other other side.
  9. Add one cup chicken stock to skillet, reduce heat to medium low, cover, and let cook for 15-20 minutes or until juices run clear.
  10. Serve with lemon wedges.

NOTES

KID NOTE:  The kids did great with this meal. All the flavors were perfect and a little ketchup for the potatoes (fries) never hurts.

VEGETARIAN TIP: Use thinly sliced eggplant instead of chicken. Roll with mixture and roast in the oven at 400 for about 10 minutes.

GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS:  Use gluten free breadcrumbs or crushed corn chex.

    Was a little curious why the chicken wasn’t seasoned but went along with it anyway. I’m glad I did. The chicken was AMAZING. So full of delicious flavor. This is a huge keeper!

    Incredible! I made this on our craziest night of the week. I browned the potatoes and sat them aside. Then prepared the chicken but wrapped them with bacon. I browned the chicken in a hot skillet. I added the chicken with broth to my crockpot, layed foil on top then added the potatoes. I didn’t want the potatoes to get too soft. Cooked on medium 4 hours and it was perfection when we got home. Plates were practically linked!
