Intro: Saltimbocca Santa Monica (Santa Monica Roulades)
This is simple and tasty receipe done with few ingredients:
- chicken (or turkey) slices
- rosmary branches
- raw ham (dry-cured ham, Parma ham)
- olive oil
- french fries (optional - as side dish)
I've called it Saltimbocca/roulades Santa Monica because I do them often for my namesday (August 27th).
Italian cooking guarantee ;) Please, vote for me in the contests if you like this!
Gather one rosmary branch for every chicken slice. I've got a beautiful rosmary plant in my garden :)
Wash them and let them dry a bit.
Prepare the chicken slices: they should be whole and quite thin.
Cover every chicken slice with a raw ham slice.
Roll the slices, leaving the raw ham outsuide the roulades.
Stick a rosmary branch in the roulades..
Put some oil in a frying pan (possible in teflon/nonstick) then put the roulades in it and cook them for about 30 minutes, turning frequently them upside down.
Serve the roulades with french fries or the side dish you prefer (baked potatoes, tatar sauce, tomatoes, carrots....)
