Gourmet Butcher Chicken Roulades #1: Apple-Cranberry

5 Feb

Take half a chicken breast and butterfly it open.

On one side of the butterflied breast, lay down two slices of Vermont Cabot cheddar cheese.

Sliver about half a red apple, skin and all (you want an apple that’s both sweet and tart).

Take some juice-sweetened cranberries or craisins, wad them up in your hand so they form a tight little ball and set those on top of the apples (how much exactly?  enough to fit into the palm of your hand).

Put another slice of cheddar on top of everything.

Then fold the breast over and squeeze everything together so it’s nice and tight.

Dip into buttermilk.

Roll in unflavored breadcrumbs (I like to make my own, but you don’t have to).

Bake in a 350 degree F oven for about half an hour.

Option:  spread some orange marmalade over breasts just before baking.
