INGREDIENTS
8-10 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded out until about double in size
8-10 slices provolone cheese 8-10 slices dry salami
¼ cup pesto ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes
salt and pepper
Sauce:
4 ounces sour cream 3 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoon butter 2 tablespoon flour
1 cup Parmesan cheese

PREPARATION

food processor, mix the pesto and the tomatoes until fully blended. You may need to add some
more olive oil if it seems too dry. Season each side of the breasts with salt and pepper. In the
middle of the breast place a teaspoon of the pesto mixture, a slice of cheese and slice of salami.
Fold the chicken, similar to a burrito, as to not have anything leak out from the middle. Wrap in
a Tupperware, and keep cool until you are ready to cook. Repeat with all the chicken

the cream, sour cream, and cheese. Stir over the heat until it begins to tighten. Put the chicken
back into the sauce and cover. Cook 50 minutes using 10 briquettes on bottom, and 10 on to
