Chicken Rollatini with Prosciutto and Provolone
I am really proud of this particular recipe – it feels very grown up to me for whatever reason. And by “grown up”, I do not mean difficult – I clearly do not do “difficult”. 🙂 I’ll be honest in that I didn’t really know what Chicken Rollatini was (and I still really don’t) – maybe it is just rolling up chicken with something in the middle? Either way, it is quite tasty, not too bad for you (under 170 calories each), easy to make, and takes just minutes to prepare. My better half loved it and quickly went back in the kitchen for seconds…so I think that is a good sign too!
Since this was a grown up meal for me, I also decided to step it up by preparing a side dish…which I never do. I made the Arugula Salad with Apples and Parmesan that I posted a couple of weeks ago – it turned out to be a prefect compliment to my very adult meal.
- Pound cutlets to make them thin and even, if necessary. Wash, then dry cutlets with paper towels.
- Combine the Italian Breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan in a medium sized bowl (you’ll be rolling your chicken in this later).
- Combine the Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, and Pepper in another medium sized bowl (you’ll also be dipping your chicken in this).
- Lightly spray your baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
- Dip the chicken in the olive oil and lemon mixture, then in the breadcrumbs. Be sure to cover the chicken well with breadcrumbs.
- Place each cutlet on a cutting board, and lay a ½ slice of prosciutto, ½ slice of provolone, and a few chunks of red onion on one side of the chicken cutlet.
- Roll the chicken, and place with the seam side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
- Once all of your chicken is rolled, sprinkle the remaining breadcrumbs on top, then spray with a little bit of oil on top.
- Bake 25-30 minutes and serve!
