Chicken rolls

Directions

Start from the vegetables that will stuff the piadina. Take the carrots, clean and peel them  and then proceed with a julienne cut to create thin strips. To achieve a perfect result it is good to use a well sharpened knife.

Reduce the tomato into cubes or into slices, depending on the result you want to achieve. Now clean the chicken breast well and deprive it of every fat part.

Cut the chicken into very thin slices. Pass each slice to oil and then put on a hot grill. Add salt and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes. Obviously, these cooking times refer to very thin chicken slices. If, on the other hand, you have made thicker slices of chicken, adjust accordingly.

Halfway through cooking, turn the chicken slices so that they are well grilled on both sides. When the chicken is cooked, cut it into very thin slices, which will blend very well with the julienne vegetables prepared before.

Wash the lettuce leaves. All the ingredients to make your chicken rolls are ready so start the composition of your plate.

Take a piadina and let it heat for a few seconds on both sides. Pay close attention to the cooking of the piadina, which must be very fast to prevent it from drying out and then breaks down when you are going to roll it up.

Now spread the piadina on a work surface and add the sauce. First of all, add the lettuce leaves, some slices of tomato, some strips of chicken and finish with carrots and the yogurt sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Roll up your chicken rolls. Pay close attention to this step. Try to keep your chicken rolls tight when you roll it up to prevent it from remaining too open and drop some of its dressing.

To keep the rolls tight wrap it immediately with aluminum paper and let it rest for about 15 minutes.

Serve chicken rolls hot, warm or when they have cooled. The result is always very tasty and particular. 

Tips

Store chicken rolls for one day covered with cling film. Chicken rolls can be prepared in advance, first making the vegetables and then going to make and compose the chicken rolls only when you intend to serve them to your guests.
