Chicken stuffed with cheese, olives, jalapeno and bacon! Best served with a simple creamy mushroom risotto.

Makes 6 pieces.

INGREDIENTS:

3 boneless chicken breasts-Cut from the middle and slice the smooth top off to get a thin slice. Gently tenderise with mallet till thin enough to be stuffed and folded. The bottom cuts of the breast can be used in the risotto.
6-7 pitted and drained black olives, roughly chopped
5-6 slices of jalapeno peppers (I used the ones from the jar),roughly chopped
3 slices of cheese (any cheese that melts quickly)
4-5 slices of chicken bacon, if you are using any other bacon, cook it for 2-3 minutes before stuffing. (roughly chopped)
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
A big knob of butter to cook in

METHOD:

Mix the chopped olives and jalapeno and add some olive oil to it.

Keep one piece of flattened chicken, smooth side down. Place half a cheese slice on it along with a tablespoon of the chopped bacon and another tablespoon of the olive and jalapeno mix. Fold into a neat parcel and gently flatten it with a mallet so it holds it’s shape. Repeat with the other tenderized pieces also.

In a shallow pan, on a high heat, melt the butter. Once the pan is slightly hot, add in the stuffed chicken parcels. Cook till golden brown on both sides for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Pour all the butter and the juices on the pan on the chicken when serving.

Plate with some risotto or a salad.

Enjoy!
