On a recent visit to Irene Saiger’s Bamitbach blog, I came across an easy to make but delicious sounding recipe. While she did not list exact quantities, here’s the version I made:
- 4 boneless chicken breasts cut in half and weighing about 6 ounces each.
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/ tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 12 shitake mushrooms
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 1/2 tbs parsley
- 3-4 tbs olive Oil
- Slice shiitake mushrooms and sauté in olive oil along with minced garlic and chopped parsley.
- Add salt and pepper to taste and cook till mushrooms are tender.
- Remove from heat. Fill each flattened chicken breast with some of the mixture and roll up.
- Dip in beaten egg and then seasoned bread crumbs.
- Return to hot frying pan to which you have added some extra olive oil. Fry till golden on both sides.
- Place frying pan in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes till chicken is cooked through.
- Slice on the diagonal and serve..
I made it last evening, motzey Shabbos, since I had some friends over; we all thought it was very good. Thank you Irene for this delectable recipe!!!
For side dishes I made some mashed potato with margarine, minced garlic, basil (for a great aroma), and a dash of tarragon; the second side dish was a simple honey-dijon salad. We paired it with a Benyamina 2007 Chardonnay, a very nice combination. Thank you Irene, for this delectable recipe!!!
