Chicken Roulade with Walnut and
Currant Cornbread Stuffing

Chicken Roulade

Cindy stuffs this roulade with a Walnut and Currant Cornbread Stuffing.



  1. Place the boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a gallon sized plastic bag and sprinkle with a little cold water. The water helps the breasts retain their shape. Gently pound the breasts with a mallet to an even thickness, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Pat dry and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Place a sheet of aluminum foil about 18 inches long on a flat surface in a vertical position. Lay the bacon side by side, horizontally, in the center of the aluminum.
  4. Fit the pounded chicken breasts side by side on top of the bacon to form a layer in the shape of a rectangle.
  5. Take about 2 1/2 to 3 cups of your stuffing of choice and press it onto the bottom third of the chicken breasts layer. Taking the bottom edge of the foil, roll the foil tightly so that the bacon, chicken breasts and stuffing form a cylinder. The stuffing is in the center, the chicken is the middle layer, the bacon is the outer layer against the foil. Twist the ends so that the contents are wrapped completely by the foil. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.
  6. In an oil-less, hot sauté pan or griddle pan, brown the foil wrapped chicken on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  7. Place the foil wrapped cylinder in the oven seam side down, and roast at 375 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. Rest ten minutes in a warm oven before serving.
  8. Remove the foil from the heated roulade. Slice the roulade into 1/2 to 3/4 inch rounds and fan the slices.
  9. Top with Madeira and Chanterelle Mushroom Sauce.
