If you’re stuck on what to make for dinner this week, then we’ve got the perfect recipe for you. You could try Chicken Ballotine which combines a medley of flavours that are sure to impress. Ballotine, derived from the French word for “package,” is a culinary method whereby meat, such as chicken, is stuffed with a variety of ingredients and tied together before cooking. When sliced, it makes for a gorgeous presentation. This version is stuffed with a mushroom, tarragon, and chèvre mixture and served with an Israeli couscous and apricot salad. Despite its name, Israel couscous is actually not a type of couscous, but is in fact a type of toasted pasta. It can usually be found at most grocery stores, but feel free to sub orzo or even rice if you can’t find it in your area.
You can stop by our farm store to pick up some fresh chicken breasts, or place your order online and we will have it all ready for you! Read on for more inspiration as to what to cook for dinner!Continue reading
