Delicious Swiss Chicken Roll

In weekdays I love simple cooking. This delicious Swiss Chicken Roll is one such simple recipe but bit elaborate. Cooking becomes a relaxing meditation when you make something with patience and lots of love. At the end of the day your hard work became worth when a delicious food bring lots of smile and appreciation from dear ones. For dinner this Swiss Chicken Roll can be a good choice. Try it!


Chicken breast    1 pounded to about 1/4-inch thin
Gruyere cheese   1 tall cube
Boiled potato       1
Onion chopped     4 tablespoon
Garlic  chopped     2 teaspoon
Yellow and green zucchini    1/2  cup diced
Eggplant        1/3 cup diced
Tomato          1 diced
Onion              1 flaked
Tomato puree   1 table spoon
Olive oil          4 table spoon
Butter             1 table spoon
Parsley            1 table spoon  finely chopped
Asparagus      3 to 4 
Salt and freshly ground pepper  to taste 
Sweet Basil     for garnish (optional)
Take the chicken breast season both side with salt and pepper. Now put the gruyere cheese (take the young Swiss cheese as it is creamy and nutty in this stage but with age it become more complex slightly grainy very similar to human nature hahaha ! jokes apart, gruyere truly adds savories without overshadowing the other ingredients and it is one of the best cheese for baking) in the middle and then roll it up, securing with toothpicks. Sprinkle salt and pepper in it. Take a fry pan then put a table spoon of olive oil slightly fry both side of the chicken roll. Now in a baking dish take this roll and bake it in 356 degree F for 10 minutes.
In the mean time take a pan give 1 table spoon of olive oil sauté 2 table spoon of chopped onion and one tea spoon of chopped garlic . Put off the flame now in a bowl take boiled potato , sauté onion and garlic, 1/2 table spoon of butter you can add more if your health permit and salt and freshly ground pepper. Now mash the whole thing very well. Keep aside.
Now put a fry pan on flame give 2 table spoon of olive oil in it. Then add 2 table spoon of chopped onion and one tea spoon of chopped garlic. Sauté for a minute add the diced zucchini, eggplant and tomato now sauté for 3 to 4 minutes add onion flakes stir well. Add tomato puree salt and pepper and finely chopped parsley. Mix well. Put off the flame. Keep aside.
Now heat 1/2 table spoon of butter and stir the asparagus with salt and pepper. Yes the step by step preparation is ready. It’s now time to serve it in style. You can arrange it in layer like put the mashed potato in the first layer then a second layer of stir fried vegetables then the baked chicken breast and above it the asparagus ( garnish with few fresh leaves of sweet basil) or you can place them in sides but the real taste of Swiss chicken roll will come when you put a small portion of all the ingredients in your mouth at the same time.I assure after having this chicken rolls one word of appreciation will definitely come from your family -“LOVELY DEAR!”

Be Happy And Stay Healthy.

Oh my! This is all the right stuff, healthy and comforting. Rolling chicken breast is not usually what I'm best at but this seems easy with the asparagus as a helper. :)
