Walnut-Stuffed Chicken Roulades

Whole-grain crackers and walnuts stand in for breadcrumbs to coat the chicken. Mushrooms add a smoky finish to the stuffing and provide iron, along with the spinach.

Walnut-Stuffed Chicken Roulades

Ingredients

  • 10 thin, crisp whole-grain crackers, such as Kavli
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 3 ounces shiitake mushroom caps, chopped (3 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 2 ounces spinach, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each), butterflied and pounded evenly
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pulse crackers and 3/4 cup walnuts in a food processor until finely ground.

  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic and shallots until soft, about 4 minutes. Add mushrooms and thyme, and cook until mushrooms are slightly golden, about 4 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add spinach and water to skillet. Cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Chop spinach, and add to mushroom mixture. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup walnuts.

  3. Season each chicken breast with 1/4 teaspoon salt and some pepper. Lay 1 chicken breast on a plate. Spread 1/2 cup mushroom-walnut mixture onto chicken, leaving a 1/2-inch border all around. Roll, and tie with kitchen twine. Cover with crumb mixture, pressing to coat. Repeat with remaining chicken, mushroom-walnut mixture, and crumbs. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until golden, about 30 minutes. Untie, and slice.

    I think every single site on the internet assumes we all know what a roulade is unfortunately, I cannot figure out how I am supposed to make this crust?? In any event the filling is quite nice, we ended up just making a flat flour crust though it turned out a bit bland.
