4 organic or free range skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Sea salt and freshly ground organic GF black pepper
1 cup cooked artichoke hearts (you can used canned as long as they are GF), slice to small bite size pieces
1/3 cup GF mayonnaise
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
4 slices gluten-free ham, thinly sliced (I prefer black forest ham)
For the sauce ~ 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil + 1 garlic clove, minced, 2 organic tomatoes chopped + 1 cup organic milk + handful of organic fresh basil + sea salt to taste
Preheat oven to 375 F and lightly brush baking pan with olive oil
To prepare chicken breast: Using a sharp knife butterfly the chicken first, then place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of parchment paper. With a meat mallet, pound to 1/8-inch thick. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper
In a medium bowl add artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, garlic and ¾ cup Parmesan cheese.
To construct ~ Place one slice of ham on a piece of parchment paper, and then chicken breast and evenly spread ¼ of the artichoke mix on top. Roll tightly using the ham to hold the breast together, and then place seam-side down in the baking dish. The chicken sides should not be touching so that they brown nicely all over. Bake for 20 minutes.
To prepare the sauce ~ sauté garlic in olive oil until just fragrant, stir in tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes while stirring. Then add to blender with milk and basil, blend until smooth. Season to taste. Pour sauce over the chicken, sprinkle with balance of Parmesan cheese and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve with gluten-free pasta or light salad.
