Chicken Roulade with Prosciutto, Fire Roasted Red Peppers, Spinach and Parmesan Poached in Homestyle Tomato Sauce

8 Nov

This is a very bright and flavorful dish. It is exploding with fresh flavors and strikes every note in the flavor scale! It is sweet, salty, savory, rich and vibrant. Aside from being packed with crisp vegetables and bursting with fresh herbs this dish is extremely healthy! Poaching the chicken in tomato sauce allows the chicken to cook thoroughly while keeping it juicy and moist. The fat from the prosciutto melts and combines with the aroma from the roasted peppers and parmesan to gently coat the inside of the chicken with the perfect marriage of mouthwatering flavor.

5 chicken breasts

5 slices prosciutto

1 1/2 cups roasted red pepper, chopped

1 1/2 cups fresh spinach, chopped

garlic, minced

3/4 cup fresh grated parmesan

Homestyle Tomato Sauce

1 white onion, diced

3-4 large tomotoes

italian parsely

3 cloves garlic, minced

1. Prepare my Homestyle Tomato Sauce.
