Blogged by: Highpoint 16 Dec 2020 View comments
These little chicken roasts are the perfect size for one person. They are an easy option for a Christmas buffet as there are no bones to contend with, which means they are very easy to carve and nice and quick to cook.

The sausage stuffing can be tweaked in many ways to suit your own personal tastes, from the variety of sausage used, to the dried fruit and herbs used.  Tailor it your way to give it your own personal touch.

You can find all the ingredients you need for this recipe at Rainbow Meats and Marketplace Fresh located in the Fresh Food Precinct. 

 

Chicken breast roasts with sausage stuffing recipe

Preparation time: 25 mins
Cooking time: 25 mins
Serves 6
 

Ingredients

6 small skinless chicken breast fillets from Rainbow Meats (about 200g each)
4 thin Italian pork and fennel sausages from Rainbow Meats
2 green shallots, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely grated
2 Tbsp. pistachio kernels, roughly chopped
3 dried figs, finely chopped
¼ cup dried breadcrumbs
2 tsp finely chopped fresh sage leaves, plus extra 6 whole leaves
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Sea-salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to season
Your favourite gravy, to serve
Cranberry sauce, to serve
 

Method

1. Put a chicken breast in between two sheets of baking paper. Use a rolling pin to gently pound chicken to flatten out to 1cm thick. Set aside and repeat with remaining.
2. Squeeze sausage meat from sausage casing into a large bowl. Discard casings. Add shallots, garlic, pistachios, figs, breadcrumbs, chopped sage and mix well until combined. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions, and roll each into a rough log shape.
3. Put one log onto one short side of a chicken breast (making sure the smooth side of the chicken breast is facing down), then roll up tightly to enclose. Place a whole sage leaf down the length of the roll, secure with 3-4 of lengths of kitchen twine. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Repeat with remaining chicken and sausage mixture.
4. Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced. Line an oven tray with baking paper. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat and cook chicken, turning occasionally for 10 minutes or until browned all over. Transfer to the oven and roast for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside covered loosely with foil for 5 minutes. Serve whole or thinly sliced on a large platter with gravy and cranberry sauce on the side.
