  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Stuffed Chicken:
  • 1 cup toasted breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup leftover caramelized onions
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese (crumbled)
  • 1/4 cup parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 chicken cutlets
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Braised Escarole:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red onion (peeled, thinly sliced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled, smashed)
  • 1 head escarole (leaves removed and torn)
  • 1 can white beans (drained, rinsed, 15 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • For the Stuffed Chicken: In the bowl of a food processor add the breadcrumbs, caramelized onions, blue cheese, parsley, olive oil and pulse to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place 2 tablespoons of the filling on one of the short ends of the chicken cutlet. Roll like a jelly roll and seal with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining 3 cutlets.
  • Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Season the rolled chicken with salt and pepper, dredge lightly in flour and place in the skillet. Cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove to the braised escarole, cover and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Serve.
  • For the Braised Escarole: In a large shallow pot add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until almost tender, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, escarole, and white beans and cook an additional minute. Add the white wine, tomato sauce and chicken stock, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Allow to cook for 7 minutes before adding the chicken.
  • Tip: Use your favorite cheeses and herbs to stuff chicken cutlets. Roll the chicken cutlets the night before for easy prep the next day.
