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.
