need about 4 good sized boneless chicken breasts for
this one. After you clean them, dry them and stick
them in the freezer for about 8 minutes. Take them
out, lay them flat and slice them parallel to the
cutting board and open them up.
Use a meat
mallot, or, the bottom of a heavy glass, pound gently
each slice to where it is thin enough. Then salt and
pepper lightly each slice and set aside.
In a bowl,
mix together really well:
1 cup of
seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup of parmagiano cheese
1/2 cup of virgin olive oil
1/8 cup fresh chopped parsley
2 cloves fresh chopped garlic
1/4 cup of finely chopped onions
salt and pepper to taste
have to, add a little extra olive oil to make moist,
but not soaked. Lay out a slice of the chicken and
place a dollop of the mixture, spread and press down
with fingers. Add a piece of provolone cheese and
a slice of prosciutto ham in the center and roll up.
Put a bay leaf inbetween each chicken spedini (not
inside the spedini but on top).. Place the rolled
up chicken Spedini in a Pam or Olive Oil sprayed baking
dish and repeat this process. If you have any of the
mixture left, sprinkle a little on top.
and put the baking dishin into the oven at 325 degrees
for 60 minutes.
and bake at 300 degrees for 10 more! Mama Mia! Remove
the bay leaves and discard.
with a garnish of fresh parsley and a slice of lemon.
Maybe a small side order of your favorite pasta!
