Serves: 4Hands-on: 25 minutesTotal: 1 hour 10 minutesDifficulty: Medium


Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 1⁄2 lb. thin-sliced boneless, skinless chicken cutlets
  • 1⁄4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled and minced
  • 2⁄3 cup plus 2 Tbsp. matzo farfel
  • 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
  • 1⁄4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1⁄4 tsp. dried sage
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle the chicken cutlets with pepper and 1 teaspoon salt.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the oil and heat until shimmering. Sauté the onion for 5 minutes until soft. Add 2⁄3 cup matzo farfel, chicken broth, cranberries, sage, and 1⁄2 teaspoon salt. Remove from the heat and let the mixture sit for 20 minutes to cool and for the matzo to absorb the liquid.
  • Spread the cooled stuffing evenly on top of the chicken cutlets. Starting at the thin bottom end of the chicken roll each breast up and secure with a toothpick if necessary to hold it in place. Move the chicken breasts to prepared baking sheet.
  • Spray the top of each breast with cooking spray and then sprinkle the top with the remaining matzo farfel. Spray once again with cooking spray and place in the oven.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F. Remove from oven and serve hot.
