sage and onion stuffing


I’m not stuffing a whole chicken or turkey today, I’m just making rolls of chicken breast with sage and onion .

i sauté a little chopped onion. Then in a bowl I mix the onion with a small handful of chopped  fresh sage,  2 spoons of fresh white bread crumbs, a generous grind of pepper and nutmeg, a spoon of parmesan and a little salt.  Finally, a dash of milk. I place a spoonful of the mixture on a thin slice of seasoned chicken breast and roll up. It makes sense to secure the rolls with a cocktail stick. I didn’t today and one of the rolls opened up as it cooked! I quickly seal the rolls in olive oil, add a splash of white wine, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes. I uncover the pan and reduce the cooking liquids.

This would be good in turkey breast too. If I were to stuff a whole bird, then obviously the quantities would be greatly increased but I would also add chopped ham amd an egg instead of the milk.
