Chicken Rolls with Fantana Cheese

I had left-over Fantana cheese and was not sure what to do about it.  I saw an Italian recipe with veal which also used Fantana.  I did not have veal at home and didn't want to go buy it.  I had already thawed out some chicken breasts for dinner and thought I should try it on the chicken instead.  The recipe looked simple to make, but it actually took me some time to prepare it.  However,  it was very good and sure nice to serve to friends.


Chicken breasts
2 Shallots, sliced
Fantana cheese, sliced
Red cabbage, shredded
Red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
Some flour

  1. Slice chicken breasts thinly across and pound it with meat mallet.
  2. Heat oil in pan, saute cabbage for 10 minutes, and add salt.
  3. Add red wine vinegar and cook for another 10 minutes or until sauce is dry.
  4. Start layering chicken breasts with a piece of Fantana cheese, proscuitto,and cooked cabbage.
  5. Roll chicken breasts tightly and secure with a toothpick. Sprinkle some flour on top.
  6. Add some oil in a hot pan.
  7. Saute onion until fragrant.
  8. Add in the rolled chicken, saute and turn occasionally.
  9. Pour in some white wine and continue to saute until chicken is thoroughly cooked
  10. Serve immediately when it is still warm.
