Stuffed Chicken Breast with Purée De Tomates

How many of you have experienced this: you thought to cook something and what you cooked at the end was totally different? I guess many of us have done it thousands of time. I do it very frequently :P..... Though I am glad that whatever be the end product, it turns out to be good.....phew....all those hard work in the kitchen do pay off then :)........
The recipe today I am going to share with you is one of those many out of the box recipe.....Stuffed chicken breast with purée de tomates.

Ingredients :


1. Chicken breast- 2
2. Salt to taste
3. Black pepper powder- 1 tsp
4. Olive oil- 1 tsp
5. Rice (cooked)- 3/4 cup
6. Cheese- 1 tbs
7. Sweet corn- 1 tbs
8. Onion (finely chopped)- 1 tbs
9. Vinegar- 1 tsp
10. Red capsicum- 1

Procedure :

Wrap the chicken breasts in cling film separately. Now beat them with the rolling pin for a while. Do not beat too hard or else your chicken breast will be damaged. This is done to flatten the chicken breast to around 1/4" thickness. Now season the breasts with salt and black pepper powder for a while. Keep them aside. Heat 1 tbs oil in a pan and add chopped onion. When they turn translucent , add the sweet corn and fry for 2 minutes. Season with salt , vinegar and pepper. Turn off the heat. Add the shredded cheese and 2 tbs of the cooked rice. Mix well. Now put one tbs of this mixture at one side of the chicken breast and roll it slowly and tightly. Wrap the chicken breast well and place some toothpick to hold the wrapped chicken. Pre heat the oven at 400 degree F. Place the chicken breasts in a baking pan and drizzle some olive oil over them. Bake the chicken for 35 minutes and check whether it is done or not. Take them out and keep aside.

Tomato puree :

1. Green tomato- 3
2. Oregano- 1/2 tsp
3. Red paprika- 1/2 tsp
4. Salt to taste
5. Black pepper powder- 1/4 tsp

Procedure :

In the same baking pan where the chicken breasts were baked, put the tomatoes. In a bowl add the cubed bell pepper with some salt , pepper and olive oil. Mix well and place the bell papaer cubes in the same baking pan. Now bake them at 400 degree F for 15 minutes. Take them out. Keep the bell peppers in a separate bowl. Take the tomatoes out and mash them well. Add the oregano , salt , paprika and pepper and mix well. Your sour green tomato puree is ready!!

Serve the breast piece with some baked red bell pepper and the tomato puree.
