Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, coarsely ground (6 ounces total; use food processor to grind thighs) or 6 ounces ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream or milk
  • 1 beaten egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Maple Syrup Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary
  • 8 ounces dried lemon fettuccine, fettuccine, lemon linguine, or linguine, cooked and drained
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Vegetable Compote (recipe follows)
  • Sprigs of fresh rosemary (optional)
  • Lemon wedges (optional)

Directions

  1. For chicken rolls: Place each breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. With the flat side of a meat mallet, pound lightly into a rectangle about 1/8-inch thick. Remove the plastic wrap.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the ground thigh meat, the whipping cream, the egg yolk, the 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, the salt, and the pepper. Divide mixture among the 4 breasts, placing a mound in the center of each piece. Fold in sides and roll up jelly-roll-style, pressing edges to seal (you can cover and chill the rolls for up to 24 hours).
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the Maple Syrup Sauce and keep it warm.
  4. In a large skillet, melt the 1 tablespoon butter with the olive oil. Add chicken rolls. Cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until golden brown, turning to brown on all sides. Transfer to a 2-quart rectangular baking dish.
  5. Brush the tops of the chicken rolls with the 2 tablespoons maple syrup and spindle with the 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary. Bake the chicken rolls in a 400 degrees F oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until internal temperature registers 165 degree F on an instant-read thermometer.
  6. Cook the fettuccine according to package directions and drain off water. Gently stir in lemon juice and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. While the fettuccine cooks, prepare the Vegetable Compote.
  8. To serve, spoon fettuccine onto 4 warmed dinner plates. Place a chicken roll on each. Spoon Vegetable Compote onto one side of the fettuccine. Spoon Maple Syrup Sauce over chicken. Garnish with rosemary and lemon, if you like. Makes 4 servings.

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup vegetable (or chicken) broth
