This recipe is based on one by Rachel Ray. I lightened it up significantly, it came out incredibly well.
Halve the chicken breasts horizontally separating each into 2 cutlets.
Place each halved cutlet in an individual freezer plastic storage bag (with slider tab). Add a tablespoon of water to each bag and pound into1/8-inch thick cutlets.
Arrange the 4 cutlets on work surface. Season cutlets with salt and pepper on the side facing up. Cover each piece of chicken with 1 slice cheese and 1 oz ham. Starting on 1 side of the breast, place a small bundle of 3 asparagus spears. Wrap and roll the chicken around the asparagus. Wash hands.
Heat about 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil in a skillet (I used my new cast-iron pan, but you can use non-stick) over medium heat. When hot, using tongs, add the chicken roll-ups to skillet with seam side down. Season the roll-ups with salt and pepper. Cover the pan loosely with tin foil or lid and cook 4 to 5 minutes, turn roll-ups over and cook and other 4 to 5 minutes.
Combine Sauce ingredients in a bowl
Serve over couscous with the sauce drizzled over both
jpfleg55 3y agoLight, easy, and delicious. I substituted steamed broccoli and cauliflower for couscous as the side and made a little extra sauce to drizzle over everything. Thanks for the recipe - added to favorites to try again soon,
Woodcent 3y agoGreat recipe, my family loved it! I will definitely make it again!
Jbluedog274 3y agoI wasn't crazy about the sound of the sauce so instead I did a cream sauce as a base and then nestled the chicken roll ups in the sauce to cook. It's outstanding. I've made this recipe 6 or 7 times and it's been great every time
c3andrea 3y agoomg. i absolutely loved this thing. although there are no clear instructions how to make the sauce NOR couscous (and you can't assume a beginner like me knew) i didnt fail and my fam loved it. lots of compliments. very easy to make and extremely delicious.
melegan 4y agoUsed plain Greek yoghurt and Pecorina Romano cheese. The meal was so light and flavorful, will definitely cook again soon.
Nic0le85 4y agoWell I was rushed for time so I didn't get to do the sauce but the chicken roll up itself was great, I loved it!
bengies69 5y agoNot really into sweet sauces but was pretty good and very easy to make, thanks.
lmfinch72 6y agoThis was so easy and so good. I used plain Greek yogurt. It turned out so well. I froze two servings with brown rice to use as a later quick meal, they re-heated well and were just as good. Love it.
