Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees with rack in center. Place parsley, thyme, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Coat a small saute pan with cooking spray. Heat the pan to medium; saute garlic and broccoli rabe, until garlic is translucent and broccoli rabe has wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Add to food processor, and pulse to combine. Add the ricotta; process until combined. Set aside.

  • Place one of the chicken breasts between two layers of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, pound evenly until the breast is a scant 1/4 inch thick. Repeat with the remaining breasts. Spread 3 to 4 tablespoons of filling in an even layer on each breast. Roll up the breasts, and secure rolls with a wooden skewer or toothpick.

  • Coat a large skillet with a heatproof handle with cooking spray, and place over medium-high heat. Place chicken breasts in the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until golden on all sides, about 3 minutes total. Place skillet in oven, and cook until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees, about 13 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet, and set aside. Place skillet on top of stove over medium-high heat; add wine, and reduce liquid by half, about 1 minute, scraping skillet with a wooden spoon to dislodge any cooked-on bits. Strain liquid into a small pitcher. Cut rolled chicken crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. Serve warm with reserved sauce.
