Chicken Roulades & oven baked potato chips

Ingredients

For the Roulades

4 chicken thighs - skinless and boneless
4 cups spinach - chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 medium onion - finely chopped
4 flakes of garlic - finely chopped
4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
4 strips of bacon (you can use turkey bacon - thats what I used)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 cup chicken stock OR white wine
2 teaspoons corn starch
2 tablespoons light cream OR half'n'half
1 teaspoon chopped chives
salt to taste
crushed pepper

For oven fried chips

4 potatoes - sliced thin
salt
pepper
paprika powder
olive oil

Method

Chicken Roulades

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the chicken thighs in between plastic wrap and flatten it with a rolling pin or with a meat tenderizer. Season one side with cajun seasoning. Be careful, as cajun seasoning is spicy - so add according to taste.
In a karahi, add the butter, when it melts, to it add the garlic and then the onions. fry till they become transparent. Then add the chopped spinach and cook till all the moisture has been cooked off. Add salt to taste and pepper.
Divide the spinach filling between the 4 chicken pieces and roll up neatly. Wrap a strip of bacon neatly and tie it securely with a fine string.
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and brown the rolls all over. Take these browned rolls and place them neatly in a baking dish. Pour in the wine OR the chicken stock and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, till they get tender. Transfer the chicken to a serving plate and remove all the string.
Strain the wine OR chicken stock liquid in a saucepan. Blend the corn starch in some water and add it to the juices in the saucepan and stir to avoid any lumps. Add the cream and stir well till the whole mixture is well incorporated. Bring to a boil. Add alt and pepper if needed. Now add the chopped chives. Pour the sauce around the chicken in the serving dish.

For oven chips

Place the slicked potatoes on a cookie sheet. Drizzle some olive oil on top of it and then add salt, pepper and paprika powder. Let it bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. Chips are ready

The roulades and the chips are ready to be served with some nice green salad.
