Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

Prepare the chicken slices: they should be whole and quite thin.

Cover every chicken slice with a raw ham slice.


Step 3:

Roll the slices, leaving the raw ham outsuide the roulades.

Stick a rosmary branch in the roulades..

Step 4:

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.

Step 5:

Serve the roulades with french fries or the side dish you prefer (baked potatoes, tatar sauce, tomatoes, carrots....)

Bon appetit!

    Prosciutto crudo. Ho trovato la traduzione su e mi son fidata. Per sicurezza ho cercato anche sull'Oxford e ho trovato dry-cured ham, Parma ham, quindi vado a modificare :)

    Dopo qualche anno di confusione ho imparato che la traduzione è molto più semplice di come inglese il prosciutto cotto si chiama ham, mentre quello crudo si chiama proprio "prosciutto" :D
    Quindi vai tranquilla, lo chiamano così anche loro! ;)
