Recipe: Chicken Roulade

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for brushing
  • 4 x 200g skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 3mm thickness
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 120g feta, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Lemon wedges

PREPARATION

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; brush with oil. Arrange chicken breasts in a single layer on prepared sheet and brush all over with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle chicken with feta, oregano, garlic, and lemon zest, dividing evenly and keeping filling away from edges. Beginning at the narrower end of 1 chicken breast, roll up, enclosing filling as you would a jelly roll; tie with kitchen twine at 2.5cm intervals to secure. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.

Preheat oven to 220°. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken roulades and cook until brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer chicken roulades to a small roasting pan and bake 5-7 minutes.

Add wine, broth, and lemon juice to skillet; bring to a boil and cook, scraping up any brown bits, until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Cut strings from roulades and place on plates. Spoon pan juices over; serve lemon wedges alongside for squeezing over.
