Galliano, an Italian liqueur flavored with 30 herbs and spices, including anise and vanilla, gives the sauce for these stuffed chicken breasts a complex sweetness.
Yield: serves 4-6
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, pounded 1/8″ thick
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 12 tbsp. herbed goat cheese, softened
- 6 thin slices prosciutto
- 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled
- 10 oz. cremini mushrooms, sliced
- Flour, for dredging
- 2 tbsp. canola oil
- 1 1⁄2 cups chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup Galliano liqueur
- 1 tbsp. finely chopped parsley
- 4 cups cooked rice, for serving
- Season chicken with salt and pepper. Working with one breast half at a time, spread one side with 2 tbsp. goat cheese and top with one slice prosciutto; roll into a tight cylinder. Using kitchen twine, tie chicken roll 1″ in from each end. Snip off excess twine.
- Heat 3 tbsp. butter in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, without stirring, until browned, 4–5 minutes. Stir mushrooms and continue cooking until softened, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate; wipe out skillet. Put flour on a plate; dredge each chicken roll in flour. Heat 2 tbsp. butter and the oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning, until browned and cooked through, 12–14 minutes. Transfer chicken rolls to a plate. Add broth and Galliano to skillet; boil, stirring, until sauce has reduced by a third, 4–5 minutes. Return mushrooms and chicken to skillet; cook, turning to coat in sauce, until warmed through, about 5 minutes.
- Transfer chicken to a platter. Remove skillet from heat; swirl in remaining butter to make a smooth sauce. Spoon sauce over chicken; sprinkle with parsley. Serve with rice.
