Stuffed Chicken Medallions
4 Boneless Chicken Breast (about 2 lbs)
1 (16 oz) Bag Spinach
1 (16 oz) Container Ricotta Cheese
1 ( 1 oz) Italian Salad Seasoning Mix
1 (2 oz) or 8 slices Pancetta
1 TBSP Butter
3/4 Cup Cream
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Heat oven at 350 degrees.
Using a sharp knife, open each of your boneless chicken breast until you get sort of a butterfly out of each one. Between 2 pieces of parchment paper, flatten then a little bit so it's easy for you to stuff them. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine your ricotta cheese, spinach and salad mix.
Take a flattened chicken breast on to a flat surface,season with some salt and pepper and place 2 slices of pancetta on it, place some of the cheese and spinach mix, roll it a little bit and using some wooden toothpick pinch the sides together so the stuffing stays in place. Repeat the process with the rest of the chicken breasts.
Place in a bake safe pan and bake covered for about 30-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Remove the chicken from the baking pan and let it rest before cutting it in the shape of medallions.
To make the sauce, use the pan chicken drippings left on the baking dish. Place them in a small sauce pan with butter and cream, season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for a few minutes without letting it boil until it reduces. Remove from heat and sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top of the sauce and serve on chicken medallions. Enjoy.
