Simple, festive and fabulous, this low carb, low fat creation looks as good as it tastes. Also great with Organic Prairie Turkey.

Ingredients

  • 1 12 pounds Organic Prairie Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons Organic Valley Salted Butter
  • 13 cup peeled and minced shallots
  • 4 red bell peppers, cut into strips (medium-sized)
  • 12 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (for brushing top of roulade)
  • pepper to taste (coarsely ground)

Directions

In a heavy skillet, over medium heat, saute minced shallots in butter until slightly golden (2 minutes). Add bell pepper strips, basil and balsamic vinegar. Cook until peppers are just tender - do not overcook. Season with sea salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Place thawed turkey breast on a "meat only" cutting board, between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Pound with a mallet to 1/2-inch thickness. Remove top sheet of plastic.

In a food processor, pulse the cooled shallot/pepper mixture until semi-smooth. Spoon the red pepper mixture onto the turkey breast, and spread out evenly leaving a 1-inch edge clear for easy rolling.

Starting at 1 long side, roll up turkey breast jelly-roll style. Secure edge with skewers or toothpicks, then tie with kitchen twine. Oil a 13x9x2-inch metal baking pan. Transfer roulade to prepared pan, skewer side down. Brush roulade with olive oil & sprinkle with salt and pepper. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Preheat oven to 400F. Roast roulade until thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 160F, about 35 minutes.

Remove roulade from oven; let stand at room temperature 5 minutes. Remove string and skewers from roulade. Cut into 6 slices and transfer to a decorative platter. Garnish with roasted seasonal fruits and root veggies.
