For the last few days we were in Nashville and all we did was eat out, so when we got home all I wanted was a home cooked meal—something simple and full of flavor.
And of course something that wasn’t complicated or fussy in design or prep. That’s so not me.
That something is what you see here. The chicken is stuffed with a simple rice and spinach mix and I decided to encase it all in some puff pastry for added flavor and dimension.
Now here’s the best part, I didn’t care to make these roulades. To avoid rolling and tying everything together, I just smashed two pieces of chicken flat, and then used an offset spatula to spread some of the rice stuffing on top of one piece of chicken and then placed a second one on top of that and sealed it all together. After some baking, I wrapped it all up in puff pastry. Done.
Fork, knife and a coke – it was all gone in minutes. So make sure you make you make plenty or eat alone.
