Cooking chicken rolls with dried fruits:
Step 1: prepare the chicken.To begin with, thoroughly rinse the chicken fillet with cool running water and dry it with paper kitchen towels. Then we transfer it to the cutting board and with the help of a knife we clean it from fat, if any. Next, the washed fillet with the same sharp inventory is cut lengthwise in such a way that the fillet can be expanded like a book. And then, lightly beat the meat with a kitchen hammer or knife handle to level the surface. Since the chicken fillet is very tender in its structure, apply strokes not strong, otherwise you can violate the integrity of the meat ingredient and the dish will turn out wrong. In this way, process all the chicken pieces and transfer them to a plate or other container.
Step 2: prepare the walnuts.We take the walnuts out of the shell, put them on a cutting board and use a knife to chop the ingredient into medium pieces. Next, turn on the temperature of the stove to a small level, put the pan on the burner and when it warms up, pour the chopped walnuts into it. Fry them for about 10 - 15 minutes, while constantly stirring with a kitchen spatula so that they do not burn. And already ready we pour in a small deep plate.
Step 3: prepare the remaining ingredients.We wash the feathers of shallots under running water and dry them with paper kitchen towels. Then we transfer them to the cutting board and finely chop the ingredient with a knife. Shredded onions are transferred to a plate. Next, take the cheese, free it from packaging and transfer it to a cutting board. With a knife, cut it into thick plates up to 5 millimeterssuch plates are necessary 6 items. Now it remains to prepare dried fruits. We shift them into a colander, rinse under warm running water and drop them into a deep plate. Pour them with water so that it completely covers dried fruits and leave for 15 minutes. After the necessary time has passed, put them on a kitchen towel so that they dry out.
Step 4: form the chicken rolls.In the middle of the prepared chicken fillet, lay 2 plates of cheese, sprinkle with dried fruits, nuts and chopped green onions. After, we turn it into a roll and fix it with twine so that it does not turn around during baking. We perform the same procedure with the remaining two pieces of chicken fillet. As soon as we have fixed all the rolls, sprinkle them with black pepper and salt well, and proceed to the first stage of the heat treatment.
Step 5: fry the rolls.Turn on the temperature of the plate to an average level. Pour olive oil into the pan and put on the burner. We shift the rolls into the preheated fat and start frying them from all sides, turning them over with a kitchen spatula until a beautiful golden brown crust forms.
Step 6: bake rolls.Preheat the oven to a temperature of 190 - 200 degrees Celsius. Put the rolls in the baking dish, sprinkle with olive oil and put in the oven. Our rolls will be baked in about 30 minutes. Over time, we take out the form with the ready-made rolls from the oven, free them from the twine and you can begin to serve.
Step 7: serve chicken rolls with dried fruits.Chicken rolls with dried fruits are considered the second course and served hot. They can be supplemented with various sauces, for example, mustard - creamy, cheese, cracker or any other that are suitable for poultry. Moreover, such a chicken can be served with any side dish. Tender meat with flavorful filling will delight you and your loved ones with its unique taste, which is simply impossible to resist. Enjoy your meal!
- - To protect the chicken fillet from unnecessary tears, cover it with cling film before you begin to beat it.
- - If you do not like walnuts, then they can be replaced with peanuts or any other to your taste.
- - There are several methods to free walnuts from shells. The easiest is to use a special nut chopping hammer. But if it is not, then bring the water to a boil and pour nuts on it, cover and leave for 30 minutes. After that, it will be much easier to open the shell with a knife. Or put the nuts in the freezer for about 1 hour, this will also make cleaning much easier.
- - When choosing dried fruits, pay attention to their color, it should not be too bright and shiny, for example, properly dried dried apricots have a brownish-gray color, and dried white raisins, a reddish brown.
- - The filling can be supplemented with spices, such as rosemary.
