Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 rib celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup semi-dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Directions:

  1. Place chicken pieces between sheets of plastic wax; gently pound with a meat mallet to flatten evenly.

  3. Add egg, parsley, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese.
  4. Stir to blend well.
  5. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper; fill with even portions of the filling mixture.
  6. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.
  7. Arrange chicken breasts in a shallow 3-quart baking dish, spooning any extra filling around the chicken rolls.
  8. To prepare the sauce, melt 2 tablespoons butter with olive oil.
  9. Add onion, mushrooms, and cayenne pepper.
  10. Sauté until onions are translucent and mushrooms are tender, about 8 minutes.
  11. Add wine and reduce until almost evaporated.
  12. Add chicken stock and simmer until reduced by 1/3.
  13. Pour sauce over chicken.
  14. Bake at 350, basting occasionally with sauce in the baking dish, for 55 minutes to 1 hour.
