Ready to roll?
It is entirely possible to make things in your slow cooker that come out looking attractive. This recipe is a fine example, and you also get to smash things on your kitchen counter during the food prep. Double win! If you don’t have a meat mallet in your kitchen yet, this recipe might help you see the light.
- 3 or 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 6 to 8 slices of Prosciutto or spiced ham of choice. Usually about a quarter pound will do.
- 1 bunch of asparagus
- Garlic cloves
- Salt and Pepper
Instructions: (you get to smash stuff)
- Filet your chicken breasts in half. You should now have twice as many pieces of chicken!
- Smash your chicken flat with a meat mallott. Using a piece of saran wrap between the chicken and mallet helps. Do smash the chicken on both sides until the chicken is tenderized and ready to roll.
- Trim your asparagus spears to your desired length for your rolls. Cutting off about half the stalk usually works fine.
- Place 3 to 4 pieces of asparagus along with a chopped clove of garlic inside your chicken. Proceed to roll up the chicken around the asparagus.
- Roll a piece of Prosciutto or ham around your chicken roll up and you are ready to go. Using a wooden tooth pick to hold your roll together is completely optional and is normally only necessary if you made a rather messy roll-up. Everything will bind together nicely in the cooking stages.
- Line the bottom of your slow cooker with the roll-ups and cook on low for 4 hours. That’s it!
