Prep Time: 4 hr 35 min        Cook Time: 35 min        Total Time: 5 hr 10 min         Servings: serves 2


Ingredients:

1 ounce cream cheese softened
1 garlic clove minced
2 teaspoons fresh parsley finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh chives finely chopped
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
pinch of Kosher salt
2 tablespoons walnuts toasted, finely chopped

2 chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
2 large sheets plastic wrap
Spinach leaves, blanched, enough to cover each breast
2 teaspoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs


Directions:

Make Boursin cheese by combining the first 8 ingredients, cover at room temperature for at least an hour or overnight to blend flavors.

Pound breasts evenly between 2 sheets plastic wrap to 1/4-inch thick being careful not to tear or break through the flesh. Season with salt and pepper. On a flat surface, lay them flat, spread with the cheese mixture, top with the spinach.  Roll up as tightly as possible tucking in the sides. Refrigerate seam side down in a greased baking dish covered for at least 3 hours or overnight.

When ready to bake brush rolls with melted butter, roll in bread crumbs and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until juices are clear and completely cooked. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing into 1/2-inch thick servings. This stuffed entree goes well with buttered noodles or steamed potatoes with truffle oil.

Serve with a tomato rose if desired. The garnish can be made a day ahead, simply cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.


Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
