Simon & Garfunkel Chicken

Worth the effort for a special occasion.
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut in halves longways
  • 1 cup butter
  • 8 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Pound chicken breasts flat. Spread each piece with a teaspoon of butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with cheese and, starting at the narrowest end, roll up and secure with toothpick. Dredge in flour, then dip in egg and coat with crumbs. Melt the rest of the butter and add the spices. Put the chicken rolls in a casserole dish, pour herbed butter over chicken and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Pour wine over chicken and return to oven for 30 more minutes. Baste frequently with herbed butter/wine mixture.

Aw, that sounds great - I'll definitely have to try that...

Maybe they don't go together, but I could try them with the Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes :)

I make something similar with swiss cheese.
