Italian cuisine: Italian Style Chicken Breast Rolls
- WTI Magazine #101 Mar 17, 2018
Chicken breast rolls are a perfect dish for a family dinner any day of the week. The preparation is simple: lay a slice of chicken breast flat and place sliced ham and sage leaves on it, then just roll them up and cut in half, making beautiful and tasty rolls. Sage is a common ingredient in the Italian culinary tradition, used for example, in roast meat, fish and stuffing for poultry.
Current studies have demonstrated that sage extract can enhance cognitive performance, a similar effect found in coffee and tea. In addition sage has anti-inflammatory properties, especially in the connective tissue of the gums. Many toothpastes, in fact, contain sage extract.
It is possible to use other fillings such prosciutto crudo, speck or cooked spinach with pine nuts.. My recipe has a delicate taste suitable for children as well.
