Chicken ballotine with spinach, powdered porcini and minced chicken mixture

Ballotine a French cuisine dish made of deboned poultry (usually chicken) with ground meat stuffing. The other common stuffing ingredients is mushrooms, veggies and cheese.  Ballotine is similiar to sausage with poultry meat casing. The “sausage”  is tied up to keep the shape with butcher twines. Ballotine can be cooked by roasting, braising or poaching, depend on your preference. I like to roast chicken breast with some liquid attach in the bottom, i guess this can make ke chicken skin crisp up and the meat didn’t drain out too much.

Today i made a ballotine with chicken breast. The chicken breast is butterflied first then gently flatened with meat mallet until 1 cm thick. For a fancy looks, i like to the keep wings bone attach with the chicken breast and fully eksposed it. You can use the wings meat for stuffing too, vo need to worry about it. For the stuffing i use my powdered porcini mushroom after i’ve made my Smoked Lamb Chop with PORCINI Mushrooms Crusted,  I mix it with minced chicken meat and skin, cheese and a little of breadcrumbs.
