Bay leaf and parsley chicken

bay_leaf___parsley_chicken__600x450

Ingredients

1/4 cup, grated parmesan cheese
35g, roughly chopped tomaraisins
5g, chopped (for the stuffing), 10g, chopped (for the sauce) flat leaf parsley
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 small, finely chopped onion
1 cup white wine
2 tbsp grain mustard
cream
2 cups chicken stock (homemade)
Himalayan salt
3 bay leaves
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. For the stuffing: Mix together parmesan cheese, Italian parsley and tomaraisins and season well. Cut a small opening in the thickest part of each chicken breast, insert your knife and cut out a large hollow pocket in the breast. Push the stuffing into the hollow pocket and secure with a toothpick.
  2. For the chicken breasts: Heat a frying pan, add butter and coconut oil and allow to melt. Add chicken breasts skin side down and allow to brown. Turn and repeat on the other side. Place the lid on the pan and allow chicken to cook for 4–5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. Clean the pan.
  3. For the sauce: Chop the onion. Add the butter to the pan, toss in the chopped onion and cook until translucent. Add the mustard, wine and stock and simmer for 4–5 minutes. Return chicken breasts to pan, bring to a simmer and cover. Cook for 10–12 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove the lid, stir in the cream and bay leaves and simmer very gently for a further 5 minutes. Stir in parsley and season well.
  4. To serve: Divide chicken among 4 plates and serve with mashed steamed vegetables.
  5. Note: Tomaraisins are available at Woolworths stores in South Africa
