Chicken Rolls with Blue Cheese and Speck

Last weekend I taught a cooking class for making heart shape ravioli with ricotta and speck. The class was an early call for Valentine’s, participants were cooking in couples, either with their own partner or with some other single soul. It was fun and the ravioli came out really delicious!

At the end of class I had some leftover of Speck Beretta, so I decided to use it for making a quick lunch. In my fridge I had some chicken and some blue cheese. I whipped them all together into this easy dish.

Here is the recipe!

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 large chicken breast, skinless and boneless
  • 80 gr speck
  • 50 g blue cheese
  • fresh rosemary
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 glass of dry white wine
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Slice up the chicken breast into small and thin slices and butterfly each slice.
