Turkey stuffed chicken breasts

Saturday was a real busy day. On the top of that to was just down pouring. That was a perfect day for hot cocoa and snuggle under blanket. However, we had a loads of things to since morning. In the morning first ,our son has his first violin recital. so, we had to go, as there was no question of missing the first ever recital in life. And that was not the end. We had our first Christmas dinner party of 2016 that very Saturday evening. Mr. Man wanted to make a snacks party. So, I couldn’t make anything night before.  Anyway, the recital went well. 

I was scared that , might be he wouldn’t do well. However, he did  very great job, even his teacher was very much impressed on him. He is picking up violin really quickly. Anyway, atet coming home from recital, I started preparing for the party. Apart from I had clean the house. The part went very well, we had a great time. When every one left, and the house was cleaned that clock was ticking one o’clock. I really took two days to recover from that. Anyway, many of the items I cooked for the party, I’m giving recipe of one of them. 

Two cups of ground turkey
Five chicken breast pieces
One cup pesto sauce
Four tsp. garlic powder
Salt to taste
One tbsp. olive oil
One bunch of green bean
One-two zucchini
Few cherry tomatoes
A bunch of tooth picks
Freshly ground black pepper

Before going into the oven

Wash the chicken breasts , and pat them dry. Marinate them with salt and two tsp of garlic powder for two hours. In the mean time, in a big bowl put the ground turkey, pour water into it. wash with hand. Then take a big strainer, and slowly pour the ground turkey in it, in batches. Stir slowly with a spatula, to drain out the water, and transfer the turkey in another bowl. I alway use this method to wash ground meat. If you have any other way to wash ground meat,you can use that. Now heat one tsp of oil in a deep pan in medium. Pour the turkey, add salt, and one tsp of garlic powder. Let it cook covering the pan. Stir the turkey occasionally. It will take maximum ten minutes to cook.  If you find that excessive water is oozing out, don’t let it cook until the water dried up. Strain the broth, and keep it. You can use the broth anytime. Now, take one breast piece at a time. Take an enough large piece of clear plastic wrap to cover loosely the chicken piece. Take a rolling pin, and pound the chicken to make it flat, so that you can roll it. Take our the chicken from the wrap. Take one tbsp. and  little more pesto sauce, smear on the chicken. Add two tbsp. or more turkey on it. Roll the chicken and tuck few toothpicks to secure it. 

After baking

Cut the vegetable into long pieces. Preheat the oven at F. 350. Take an oven proof baking dish, lined with aluminum foil inside. Spray oil inside the pan. Arrange the chicken inside. Arrange the vegetable by the side. Bake for half and hour or more, until the chicken are tender. Take the dish put. Set it for 10 minutes. So that, you can hold the chicken. Take out the chicken pieces. Pull out all the toothpicks. With a sharp knife cut into pieces. Arrange the pieces and the vegetables. Sprinkle the sauce which was left in the baking dish. Serve hot, with steaming rice or pasta.

Well done to your son's recital! Yummy turkey dish! The fallen leaves are so pretty that I wouldn't want to sweep them away!

Cynthia said...

That sounds like a lot of work but looks so delicious. I'm sure your guests enjoyed themselves and I hope you have had a chance to rest up. Congrats to your son on his first violin recital! I know as a mom I was always more nervous than my daughters were and they were the ones playing (cello and piano)!
