3 people made this
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic
4 slices Parma ham
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
8 chicken breast fillets, sliced into thin strips
Method Prep:15min › Cook:10min › Ready in:25min
Place tomatoes in a blender with garlic, ham, basil, salt and pepper. Process till well combined but still chunky.
Lay chicken fillet strips out on a cutting board. Spread a thin layer of tomato ham filling on each strip, then roll up and wrap tightly in microwave-safe cling film; repeat with remaining ingredients (you should have filling left over).
Heat passata in a saucepan over low heat until simmering, then stir in remaining filling; keep warm.
Place wrapped chicken roulades in a dish in the microwave and cook at full power for about 5 minutes, turning once during cooking. The rolls should be well cooked (chicken no longer pink and juices run clear).
Unwrap and arrange roulades on plates and top with the tomato sauce.
