Artichoke and sun-dried tomato stuffed chicken breast

  • Preparation Time40 mins
  • Cooking Time20 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyMedium
3 tbsp olive oil, divided
80g chopped red onion
120g chopped marinated artichoke hearts
50g chopped marinated sun-dried tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
35g minced garlic
120ml white wine, divided
45g butter, divided
30g grated Parmesan, plus extra for sprinkling
Pinch finely chopped Italian parsley leaves
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1) Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a saute pan over a medium heat, add the onions and saute until translucent. Stir in the artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. Saute for 3 to 5 mins, then add the salt, pepper and garlic.

2) When the garlic begins to lightly brown, deglaze with 60ml of the white wine. Stir in 30g of the butter, allow it to melt, then toss in the Parmesan and parsley. Remove from the heat and allow to cool before stuffing the chicken breast.

3) Rinse, trim and pound out the chicken breasts to about 0.5cm thick. Do not over-pound as holes in the chicken will make it difficult for the chicken to retain the stuffing.

4) Put 1/4 of the stuffing mixture at one end of a chicken breast. Gently roll the chicken breast, folding the ends in to help keep the stuffing from coming out during the cooking process. Secure with 2 cocktail sticks. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.

5) Heat the 2 tbsp of the remaining oil in a medium saute pan over a high heat. Add the chicken breasts, with the secured side downward to insure the roll will stay together. Brown the chicken on all sides. Add the remaining butter and deglaze with remaining white wine.

6) Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 75C on an instant-read thermometer, about 10 mins.

7) Remove the chicken to a cutting board and discard the cocktail sticks. Slice each breast on a bias into 5 pieces and transfer to a serving platter. Drizzle with the remaining pan drippings, garnish with a sprinkle of Parmesan and serve.
