Chicken Rolls with Smoked Paprika and Basil
Serves 4 - Prep time 15 mins - Cook time 15 mins
4 Free range chicken fillets
Oil for cooking
Optional: A selection of root vegetables for baking. The vegetables need to be cut small enough to bake in 15 mins or you can part cook them in the microwave prior to placing them in the pan with the chicken.
Pre heat the oven to 180c (170c for fan forced)
Place a chicken fillet onto a chopping board and slice it in two, horizontally, giving you two fillet sized slices. Repeat with the remaining fillets.
Place each slice separately between baking paper and, using a mallet, gently flatten to an even thickness. You need them quite thin.
Sprinkle with Henry Langdon Smoked Paprika and Basil. The amount you apply depends on how strong you want the flavour.
Roll each slice and use toothpicks to hold in place.
Heat the oil in an oven proof dish and add the chicken, turning until lightly browned all over.
If you are doing vegetables, add them to the pan with the chicken rolls and gently turn to coat with the pan juices.
Place the pan into the pre heated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Check to ensure the chicken and vegetables are cooked, then remove from the oven and serve.
If the vegetables are not cooked but the chicken is, remove the chicken and keep warm in a covered container while vegetables finish cooking.
Hint: The pan juices make a great base for a sauce or gravy!
