Easy Friday Night Dinner

I didn’t feel like getting overly complicabobulated after a long week at work so I thought I’d just try making some chicken rolatina-esque things.

While the grill was heating up I took a package of Pamelas

and sliced off roughly 1/4 inch filets

I ended up with about 10 usable ones, and Claude very thoughtfully helped me dispose of the excess. I then put some fresh basil that Daughter has been growing (our new motto is “Think Globally; Gorge Locally”) on each

and then a layer of prosciutto

and then some provolone

and then carefully rolled those puppies up and secured ’em with a toothpick. I was going to tie them with butcher’s twine, but having been expelled from the cub scouts at an early age for crimes against Nature I missed all the knot-tying lessons so the first one I tied was a mess. Toothpicks worked much better.

Anyhow, so with a light dusting of garlic salt and fresh pepper it was off to the grill for 30 minutes or so of indirect cooking, which gave me time to make a box of Zatarain’s Black Beans and Rice and a loaf of garlic bread (and work my way through another bottle of wine, naturally)

Pretty yum and a lot less work than you would at first think.

  1. Thanks for stopping by H&B!! I am sooooooo trying this recipe. As soon as I am off my diet 😉

    And what wine did you imbibe?

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    It was Columbia Crest “Two Vines”, a blend of merlot and cabernet franc. It’s pretty tasty and only about $12 for a 1.5 l bottle.

    I would so eat that. I mean, if I was invited to dinner.
