Stuffed Chicken Breast with Mushrooms

                               Chicken stuffed with mushrooms flavored with Indian spices without a drop of oil. What more can you ask for!!!
             This delectable dish can be served with a side of rice to make a complete meal. Chicken breast is stuffed spiced mushrooms and covered in a saran wrap and foil and boiled in pot of hot water till the chicken is thoroughly cooked. In this method, chicken absorbs all the juices of mushrooms while cooking and remains tender and moist without addition of any fat.  Next time, I would prefer to make the chicken breast thinner. If you want the rolls to be thinner, wait for the chicken to cool off a bit and then cu. I was too hungry impatient , so cut the roll as soon as it was out and enjoyed my scrumptious lunch.

Ingredients:
  • 1 boneless chicken breast
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 5 white mushrooms (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves( chopped)
  • ½ chopped onion
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ¼ tsp garam masala powder
  • ¼ tsp cumin powder
  • salt n pepper

Method:
Bash the chicken breast with rolling pin or meat hammer to make it of uniform thickness.
After the chicken is flattened, season with salt and pepper.
Place the chicken breast on a clean work surface, smooth side down.
Now keep a large pot of water for boiling with the lid on.
In a small frying pan, put olive oil. Add garlic and onion.
Once onions turn transparent, add chopped mushrooms. Season with salt, pepper, chilli powder, garam masala and cumin powder.
Let the mushroom mixture for for 2-3 mins. Place the mushroom stuffing onto chicken breast.
Cut a piece of plastic wrap to fit the chicken breast.
Roll the chicken breast up into a neat roll.
Wrap the chicken rill with plastic wrap as tightly as possible. This plastic wrap seals all the juices in the chicken and prevents water from entering the roll.
Seal the roll in tinfoil, making sure the package is nice n tight.
Till now, the water must have reached the boiling point. Place the chicken roll in the boiling water and cook covered for about 20 mins.

Once cooked, you can cut into rolls or serve entire stuffed chicken roll.
Serve this protein rich entree with small portion of vegetable rice. Voila, dinner is ready...
